Can someone please explain this to me? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3NDH-JDxXM
In this video it seems as though he charges a capacitor to 400 volts with a 1.5 volt AA battery which makes no sense at all. I realize that I'm probably missing something major, but can someone explain how that works?
He is using the battery to operate a switching powersupply. The switching power supply is able to provide the higher voltage. Check out this video on power supplies.
