Mini tesla coil DIY homemade wireless energy

This device was invented by Nikola Tesla and is a great demonstration experiment. I demonstrated in this video, how to make your own a very simple mini tesla coil diy at home using minimum components. So, you can easily make this tesla coil at home. Therefore, I hope you will make it without any problems after watching this video.

Use 3/4″ PVC Pipe with length of 6 inches. Also, you can roll any card board sheet and make in tube shape of 6 to 8 inches. Be sure, the pipe should not be metallic.

Use 26 AWG magnetic wire which is also called copper enameled wire. This kind of wire is mostly used in motor winding and in transformers. 15 meters length is enough to roll for this length. So, this will be a Secondary Coil of the project.

Glue it on both sides and stick with the base vertically.

This large coil is a Secondary Coil. Insert the bottom end of copper wire into base for further connection with the other components.

Use 30 AWG wire and turn around the secondary coil 2 or 3 times and insert both ends inside the compartment through holes. I used here, an ordinary connection wire instead of 30 AWG.copper wire.

Now, stick the transistor 2N2222A in any safe place for further connections. Be sure, the plain surface of this transistor should be upward accordingly.

Connecting the components

Connect one end of 30 AWG wire of primary coil and one end of 29k resistor, with On/off Swich.

Connect the other end of 29k resistor and one end of large second coil with the transistor’s center pin.

The other end of 30 AWG wire of primary coil should be connected with the right most pin of the transistor.

The negative wire (black) will be soldered with left most pin of the transistor and the Positive wire (red) will be soldered with the second pin of On/off switch. Here you will complete the inner connections.

Take any kind of small ball and wrap into the aluminium foil. Ball is used to make the foil in round shape. You can use only the aluminium foil and make in round shape.

Remove the enamel coating from end of wire and insert inside aluminium foil. Stick the ball at the top of the PVC pipe. This ball looks like an antenna and used as a decoration piece. The coil will also work without this ball.

Attach the 9 volt battery with the circuit and stick in safe place of the compartment.

All fluorescent light bulbs and tubes will work with this circuit even they are small or large.

    1. Use minimum 29k or higher value resistor to avoid heating up transistor. Download circuit diagram and reconcile all connections. Video is not fake.
