How do you power an ignition coil

  1. Nov 18, 2011 #1
    Hello,

    I've just bought a HV Spark Coil from this site:
    http://www.rmcybernetics.com/shop/high-voltage/hv-spark-coil/prod_4.html [Broken]

    And I was wondering if anyone could help me on how I could power it? I'm really poor on money at the moment since I've just spent it on this item, so if anyone could recommend me with anything, then please do!

    What are you planning on doing with it? The output voltage can be quite dangerous...

    I want to create a Tesla Coil. With these items I will be able to use the ignition coil to do my HV experiments.

    I don't think we can be of much help to you here on the PF. We generally do not discuss dangerous activities. Please be sure to read the HV safety information on the wikipedia page about Tesla Coils:
