So I bought this capacitor a while back and kinda forgot about it. The other night I took it out of it’s crate and put it on a dolly. It’s freaking heavy at 86 kg (190 lbs). It’s rated at 16 kV, 390 uF…. storing 49.92 kJ (kilojoules).
Now we have a power supply capable of charging this thing.
Here is what I’m thinking: 16 kV is enough potential to drive a fusor grid. So basically charge this thing up and release an very high current 16kV pulse into the fusor grid.
This capacitor is probably the most dangerous piece of equipment I own. It scares the shit out of me.
