John is absolutely correct.  I really don't know how some might come to
think a positive electrical difference would be noted.  We have used the
"Equidrive" circuit in all our magnifiers only because the stress is
out to two capacitors (twice as expensive).  Lotsa' stress in magnifiers
that the old two coilers never see! 

 The only observed advantage of the equidrive is the distribution of
and electrical voltage stressed out over two units instead of one. 
Since we
have run this system we have never lost a capacitor.  That's a big
advantage for me!

Capacitance is capacitance, no matter where it is in a tesla circuit.
