Hi all!

I just but togethor a flashcap bank with 6 caps, but I plan on adding more, for a coil gun. Does anybody know how I would go about charging it? I know I cant use the camers guts anymore so what should I use?

Get a new camera

Hi,

I've got a photoflash cap bank of my own, and so far I've found that the charging circuit of the camera is the best/easiest charger to find and use. If you threw yours away, or can't use it anymore for some reason, I'd suggest trying to find a new one. The only problem is when charging large amounts of caps (it takes about 15 minutes to fully charge 20 of the caps in my bank with one charger... I don't do that anymore).
