That is done with a 3v ultra capacitor, the reason they do that, is because they don't have a internal resistor, so it allows greater current flow, ultra capacitor have a high capacitance level to, so they hold a lot of electrons, I have a couple of these, i'll charge it with my bench power supply and burn **** , it can be very fun sometimes.

I disagree. It was likely done with a step-down transformer with a high-current secondary.
Although I'm not denying that it's fun as hell to burn stuff with capacitors.

No i saw the actual video, Still kinda hard to believe 3v does that, not very much electrical pressure. but look up ultra capacitors, and look at every thing the guy burns it's awesome, and I also like to burn stuff with a high current transformer, store the energy in a cap, then connect a mosfet so I have control over the voltage lol. very hard to find a electrical nerd on this site, to many stupid 12 year olds

That must be one hell of a mosfet, there's gotta be a hundred amps there.
Do you have the link to the video?

As you can see they are awesome, even more at the end where he connects fore in series

OK I need to buy these. A LOT of these.

I have 3, they are expensive as hell, like $25 each, but worth it, when you can blow up anything, should buy more, get enough to get 100v from, my god, that would prob kill somebody, lmao
User avatar #321 to #308 - Lambda (01/08/2012) [-]
I think I'll add then to the bill of materials for my next project, not use them, then mark them for surplus. So cost is no object. ;) Then I can take them and do whatever.

Lmao ,thats awesome, And if you don't feel like blowing anything up, they are great for high current projects, I should put that energy into a step up, and try and make a tesla coil with it, wonder how that would look, idk if i could get that to work because of the very low volttage.
User avatar #336 to #334 - Lambda (01/08/2012) [-]
You'd need to run it through an inverter to get the AC required to drive the NST for the tesla coil primary. It's not too hard to build an inverter, though.
User avatar #345 to #336 - mookiez (01/08/2012) [-]
That is very true, prob just easier to stick with my neon transformer, but then again I would like to build a solid state tc instead of a spark gap one, because I wanted tto make a singing tesla coil, I could do it there, because If i'm going to wire all that, might as well as wire an inverter to get the ac wave, And we are prob really screwing with the people of fj, when they read this there mind has to be full of ****

hear is one vid of one, most of it is teaching you about them, but he burns stuff, also, so you can see the damage they do
User avatar #275 to #270 - mookiez (01/08/2012) [-]
yes, it was like a $10 mosfet, I forgot where I bought it, and let me find the vid, I forget what site it's on

capacitors do explode
User avatar #265 to #259 - mookiez (01/08/2012) [-]
If one over loads the voltage, once they get full, they won't explode, unless you try and force more electrons in it with more voltage. if they exploded when they get full, every thing in your room would blow up, and when I blow them up, they have this horrible smell of burnt peanuts, almost sicking to my stomach.

ESD (electric static discharge) may cause it to explode. A powerful ESD shock can damage capacitors. There is probably a insulation layer to stop ESD.

That is true, i forgot about that, but I don't know if it would be powerful enough to make them explode or not.
