Actually you do have to increase the capacitor size if you increase 
the charging current otherwise you will not be using the additional
current. Realize of course this assumes that you were already using 
the largest practical size capacitor for the charging current. The 
capacitor is really the controlling factor as to how much power we 
can cram into a given Tesla coil.
