Hi Martin!

Did some hunting and found;

12vdc@2amps to 2,000vac@10ma

"Typical output with a 12 VDC 2 A power supply or
battery will be 12,000 V. Maximum output current at
full voltage is typically around 1 to 2 mA. Higher
currents are available but the output voltage will
drop. At 2 kV, more than 10 mA may be possible
depending on your particular flyback transformer input
voltage and current."
Now it would be interesting to know if anyone noticed
any high voltage with the Marks device, though 2,000
volts isn't a lot in the world of high voltage, yet it
might make a light bulb filament glow, but I wouldn't
bet on this circuit, it is just one that was

It might be possible to use a DC to DC converter to up
the voltage from 1.5vdc to 12vdc, then feed that to an
off the shelf inverter.

"This circuit works from 4 to 12 volts DC. However,
the power output is quite unimpressive with supply
voltages under 8-9 volts or so. At 9 volts, this
circuit charges up capacitors at an average wattage of
..4 watt. A 200 uF capacitor would be charged to 250
volts in approximately 16 seconds."

Hardly enough to light up a bulb or much else.
tiny-tiny inverter;

"I have developed a cool little transformer circuit
that seems to be very efficient. I built this inverter
as tiny as I could make it. It runs off of 3V, and
charges up a little 1 uf 250V cap all the way up in
about 30 seconds; drawing about 5 to 8 mA in the
process.There are two wires in, and two wires out.
It's enough to run a neon fairly brightly at 1.2 V,
with a 3 ma current draw."
The higher the voltage, the lower the current required
to achieve 100Watts. So, 1 amp X 100 volts = 100Watts
which would be halved to .5 amps at 500 volts.
That's all I could find for today, but for hoots,
could be nose power as at;

"Consequently, a digital volt-ohm meter was used to
discover the flow of electrons in the mouth-nose
biologically closed electrical circuit, the only BCEC
observable externally in humans. Voltages (80 to 120
millivolts) were measurable only with a digital
volt-ohm meter, while resistances were readily
measurable with either an analog or digital ohm meter.
One terminal was placed within the oral cavity while
the other terminal was placed within the nasal cavity.
Significantly different resistance readings (P > 0.05)
-- showing a diode-like effect -- were obtained by
reversing the ohmmeter leads in the mouth and nose."
If you short a battery, it makes a helluva spark and
it gets awfully hot, eventually discharging itself
completely. A controlled short could extract a
tremendous amount of power into a circuit that could
drive a load of appreciable size and I think the key
would be the waveform. Anyway, enough for today...
