Re: saltwater cap terminals

The bolt and the outer foil covering are both "input"
terminals.  Electrolysis is not a problem in Tesla
coil applications.  The amount of Hydrogen and Oxygen
liberated is miniscule. The electrolyte will last for
months or even years with little maintenance provided
you cover the brine with 1/2 inch of mineral oil or
motor oil to control evaporation.
