I'm trying to make a showpiece which generate static electricity just like in this YouTube video LINK

Does it have Tesla Coil (Slayer Exciter) inside it or Negative Ion Generator?

  • \$\begingroup\$ 10 rupees must be a series RC capacitor with arc resonant air gap about 1~ 10mA with 5kVdc arcing at some current limited frequency. The arc temperature is over 5000’C but not at the surface so it doesn’t burn easily but starts. Any fluorescent ballast will work shockingly well. \$\endgroup\$ – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Jul 17 '18 at 18:00

It's not static electricity, static fields dissipate rapidly after dischraging.

Most likely a tesla coil, or a high voltage AC source connected to the object.

A negative Ion Generator would dissipate it's field rapidly

  • \$\begingroup\$ a basic tesla coil with 2n2222a and 22K resistor would do the job.? \$\endgroup\$ – Mudassir Hussain Jul 17 '18 at 17:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ I can't measure the current on the video so I have no idea, I will leave that up to your experimentation \$\endgroup\$ – Voltage Spike Jul 17 '18 at 17:46
  • \$\begingroup\$ is that can be achieved using USB ionic air purifier.? \$\endgroup\$ – Mudassir Hussain Jul 17 '18 at 17:49
