The design for this Tesla Coil is based on the larger battery powered DIY Tesla Coil project but with the aim of getting a much smaller and portable device. A Power Pulse Modulator circuit is used to drive two small high voltage ignition coils wired together in an 'anti-parralel' configuration. The output is rectified and used to charge the tank capacitor of a small spark gap Tesla Coil.
