    How to step up dc voltage with simple circuit?

    Connecting capacitor in series?

    From what voltage to what voltage?

    Current requirement?

    For low current voltage boost, you can use something like an ICL7660S or MAX7660. They will double the input voltage, but the output current is limited to around 10mA.

    You don't get something for nothing. If you double the output voltage, your input current requirement will be more than double your output current requirement.
