I know someone who used leyden jars in the primary circuit of a tesla coil. So, IIRC, they were charged by a neon sign transformer. Be careful with that stuff, tho.

I do know as I learned my things ;)
What I don't know is what you want or try as you still fail to provide any vital detail - so what answers do you expect to get?
Should we start with 50 questions first in the hope you give the details required?
If I were to comment on you the same way you did on me than we would have to rate this thread 18+ ;)

We have a "Be Nice" policy here. If you want help, you will please observe it.

You have given no useful details, like the size of your jar, and the actual techniques you have used to charge it (such as what voltage your supplies were).

Start by looking at other people's Leydon Jar projects;

Search hard enough, you'll find my version, which includes instructions on charging it...

van de Graf is basically static electric automated. U can also just charge it with static electric sparks. But it might take 100 sparks to charge it.
