Glad to see you are experimenting.  There is a lot to understand here.  
The negative charge is indeed normal.  Using an electrometer, I have 
detected rapid negative charges on balls up to 30 feet away.  This is 
pointing to non-ionic tranfer.  Up close, like you detected, ions are the 
main factor and supply real power as I have noted and you have confirmed. 
 I have found that my little 20 watt coil can charge a cap with an 
effective DC impedance of about 100,000 ohms.

I will post some more info as I uncover more data.
