High-voltage arcs using a flyback transformer from a monitor

Hak8or uploaded a gallery of high voltage arc pictures. The setup was salvaged from an old CRT monitor. He suspects the flyback transformer produces around 30 kV.

I found some old pictures of me playing around with a flyback, and I wanted to test out this awesome gallery thing I found, so I mushed them together, and well, here they are!

The full size pictures are around 2MB each, so users with slow internet connection be advised.

    1. Thanks! :)

      I personally regard high voltage as one of the most amazing things in electronics, it is what originally got me interested in electronics even!

      Also, nice write ups on your blog, I never saw such packaging for QFN ic’s, especially when you only ordered two of them. :P
