How would I go about upping the voltage from 12V to 300-400V for charging capacitors
As the others have said, you need to learn a bit more about electronics and safety, before you go messing with voltages above about 50-60V.How would I go about upping the voltage from 12V to 300-400V for charging capacitors
at least higher voltages that are backed up with essentially unlimited current. some high voltage transformers that drive certain Xenon or similar light sources have enough internal resistance that the max current they dump out might not kill you. (i remember in undergraduate physics lab doing something with sepctroscopy and looking into some spectroscope with my other eye closed, reaching over both hands to adjust the placement of some neon light or similar and get knocked to the floor (a convergence or comedy of errors). my left hand touched one terminal and my right touched the other terminal. if the high voltage transformer had unlimited current, i think the school could be sued for exposing students to such danger.As the others have said, you need to learn a bit more about electronics and safety, before you go messing with voltages above about 50-60V.
I have no idea as well. Don't people know high voltages could be dangerous to their health?BTW, why do so many people want to charge capacitors up to dodgy voltages?
