    I consider extending this renowned circuit in converting DC

    They are both laughable.

    Circuit1 has no output.

    Circuit2 is extremely inefficient, as well as having no method of regulating the output voltage. At best, it might provide enough current to light a bulb for a small amount of time before the battery was sucked flat.

    There is no "free lunch" in electronics.

    A special transistor? One that might generate it's own output power, perhaps? We don't explore those kinds of things here; we try very hard to stay within reality.

    The approach has been tried before, but results have generally been negative.
