WARNING: Use of video content is at own risk. This demonstration uses 2 Microwave Oven Transformers at 240 volts and 30 amps. This is enough voltage and amperage to kill on contact. This is extremely dangerous and should not be attempted by anyone who is not highly skilled in working with electricity.

Project History & More Info:

You can see I’m using an insulated PVC pipe as a “chicken stick” to strike the arcs. I also keep one hand behind my back at all times, so there is no chance I accidentally complete the circuit with my body, and expose my heart to the risk of electric shock.

Using the Microwave Oven Transformers (MOTs) I gained in other project videos, I tried connecting two of them together in series, and hooking them to 240 vac mains power electricity. The MOTs are unballasted, meaning there is nothing limiting the flow of current, so maximum power is flowing, but this runs the risk of blowing a circuit breaker, which happens from time to time. I was comfortable taking this risk because I understand what can go wrong and how to fix it, but it’s important to also understand that if the circuit breaker fails and doesn’t pop when it’s supposed to, you can run the risk of starting a fire in the walls of your house, and I’m not sure the insurance company is going to be happy about that. So be aware of all the risks.

In any case, this is an impressive display of high voltage electricity. I believe the arcs you see are somewhere around 2,000 volts, at around 3.5 amps. This is definitely enough to kill a person on contact if it were to go through the heart.

High voltage electricity is not a joke, but it is beautiful and awe inspiring. That’s why I wanted to demonstrate it quickly in this video. Enjoy!
