Product Description
Fascinating mini Tesla Coil kit is great for educational demonstrations and entertainment purposes. Produces a high-voltage, low-current arc when you hold a metallic object (ie. insulated screwdriver) next to it. Impressively, it uses wireless power to transmit electrical energy to a high-frequency, low current electrical load such as a neon lamp or fluorescent bulb without any physical connection. 85mm x 54mm x 68mm assembled. Requires at least 12 Vdc 400 ma power supply, we suggest our CAT# DCTX-1241.

Fun kit 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Seal Rock Oregon

This is a really fun little kit. Imagine a working Little Tesla coil for this price. I assembled it in less than 20 minutes and it worked great. I placed a CFL bulb next to it and it lit up like it was plugged in. Obtain some silicon adhesive to glue the secondary onto the board.

Fun and instructive 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Boston, NY

Thumbs up! Easily assembled, but two points of caution: The rounded and squared markings for the LED on the board are a little misleading, so DO follow the +/- signs. Secondly, the wire is exceptionally thin, so be careful scraping the enamel. A real joy to play with.

Fun and easy! 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Midwest

A person with only a modest level of experience can assemble this and have it running in minutes. As others have already said, make sure you only go by the - /+ symbols on the board when you install the LED and ignore the flat side marker because it's incorrect. I used a small amount of thermal transfer compound when fastening the transistor to the heat sink. You will need some kind of adhesive, silicone, or hot glue etc... to fasten the secondary coil to the board. Very fun and also enjoyable to see other people's excitement as well. This would easily be very inspiring to a younger person or someone beginning to take an interest in science.
