Step 1: Tools and Material
All you need is a soldering iron, wire cutters, and a bit of material.
Follow the video and its a matter of minutes until you made your own 350V cap charger.
!! Most simple set-up ever !!
Step 2: Instructional Video
FIRST STEP: Discharge the old capacitor!
SECOND STEP: Take a pic of both sides of the board!
Rip off the trigger transformer, its not really needed anymore.
Then, cut off the contacts on the side, and the battery "clip".
Reconnect the 2 pins, on my board, its was + to LED. Solder on the battery/switch combo.
Reconnect the new/or the old capacitor (by wire, in case you want it to store somewhere else).
Replace the old red LED with a new blue superbright LED...not a must.
Oh and again...make sure you don't TOUCH anything....charged cap, BAD!
As soon as you heard the charging FIIIIIIIUUUUUU, make sure you short the cap, everytime you
have to solder or do something on the board!
