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. 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. You can also plug in an audio source from your phone, MP3 player, or computer to play your favorite tunes as the kit is designed to modulate high voltage arcs to create audio sound waves. Requires an unregulated 12 Vdc 400 mA power supply, we suggest our CAT# DCTX-1241.

Okay, but not very loud

Reviewer: from Dallas, Tx

Pretty easy to assemble, but the primary coil (piece of wire) is not as long as the picture shows. It is indeed important that the primary wire not touch the secondary. I cut a strip of plastic from a package I had (about 1" wide) and wrapped it around the the secondary coil before wrapping the primary and it helped a lot. I purchased two kits and both seem to be about the same in performance. I hooked an MP3 player to the audio input and could just barely hear the drum beat of the music--like I said, not very loud. The arc at the end of the wire will indeed burn your skin, although, not very badly. I have built large Tesla coils before so this was not very impressive for me, it is really, really small (about 3 1/4" tall and 3/4" diameter for the secondary coil), but I bought it mostly for my grandson to learn.
