Re: Building the right capacitor

Just use caution when buying these off the internet ---- many of the .03 uF Maxwell caps were only rated for 10 pps or less, ie, not Tesla coil duty cycle --- and may fail. Best to call Maxwell with your part number to check for sure on it's rated pps.

Yes a Maxwell 35kv 0.03 uf is sufficient and well worth the investment.
