Can someone share with me a schematic to multiply a dc source? That produces, obviously a higher, output. Answered

I have a bug zapping raquet and i would like to increase the voltage to create bigger spark gaps. Portability is key. Output in AC or DC doesnt matter to me, but I guess AC would get better arcs.

Up the battery-voltage ~10-20%

The total voltage is roughly 3 right now. Adding a battery would put me at 4.5v, that's a 50% increase so do I need to introduce a low value resistor? If it was running on a bench supply this would be easy.
