    yeah...even much higher than 1500VDC, I have built a 2000VDC dazer before and since these can be very lethal.... I do not think the moderators are going to like me telling you how to do it... :)

    A flyback transformer out of a TV driven by a 555 should work nicely
    If it's too much voltage, you can always find a different transformer, the concept is the same,

    You can make a crude hi voltage generator just with a relay and a few diodes.

    Yes, I have tried that and could not find anything above 1000vdc.

    Hello,

    What is the application for the high voltage?
    What voltage do you need?

    Beware high voltage can be very dangerous.
    Read this page for information:

    It is for a hho cell. I going to put the power through a pwm and then up the volt.
    I going to try 1500 vdc.
