How To Convert 12Volt DC Into Thousands Of Volts Using A TV Flyback Transformer
In this hub you will learn how to make a flyback transformer driver in order to make it capable of doing the job of a Tesla coil which is producing an output voltage of thousands of volts! than can travel from positive to negative for a distance of 2.5-3 Cm from an input voltage of about 12 volts dc.
Things that you will need for this are:
1-A flyback transformer,It can be found in old TV’s and CRT monitors.
2-A magnet wire,it can be found in transformers’ coils.
3-A power NPN transistor mounted on a heat sink,we used this model.
NPN Power Transistor
4-A resistance of 240 ohms.
5-A resistance of 27 ohms.
6-A fast diode.
8-A 12 volt DC source.

9-Two steady poles for the electrons to travel between them,This was made out of ping pong net holders and a dozen of disks.
1-Make a five-turn feedback coil on the transformer out of the magnet wire,The turns must be the same direction as they are in the video.
2-Identify the primary coil on the transformer’s pins as in the video,The primary pins are shorted together and that can be noticed using an ohmmeter.
3-Connect the circuit as following.
