Based on the data provided is there any way to figure out the ampere turns with for instance a 10 turn coil of wire?
Don't know if this is right, but if I take the cap voltage and the power and use ohms law I get 1,118A of instantaneous current.
Another issue I would have is ensuring the cap voltage never goes above 2.7Vdc.
At one point I used an EICO power supply/battery eliminator with 30,000uF of built in capacitance (added that myself) plus around 8,000uF of external capacitance and wound a coil around the magnet of my AK E3 speaker and it seemed to do a good job.
Wonder if for instance a larger external flash unit for a camera would be better to use with the coil connected in series with the flash tube or maybe just manually connecting the coil across the cap when it is charged in order to get a higher energy than what could be achieved with the flash tube in the circuit? I could then parallel several photoflash capacitors of the same voltage rating to increase the available power, although the high voltage would be quite hazardous with the available instantaneous current I would have.
Just looked on Mouser's website and I can get a brand new one for $58.44 versus the $44.95 Electronics Goldmine wants for a used one.http://www.mouser.com/ds/2/257/Maxwell_ ... 341196.pdf
