Do you need CSA approval of the whole thing, or CSA approval of the part
that is "mains connected"...

Assume you had a battery powered coil.  If you decided to run it off a 12V
wall powered power supply, would they want CSA approval of the whole thing,
or just the power supply?

I think they want it for the whole coil.

One approach:

12V battery, inexpensive inverter, neon sign transformer, TC

I thought of that, but is the battery enough to run the coil for a few hours at least?
Which is why I think I need to make a pretty small one to make it work.
