    What a coincidence. Another Tesla Coil thread just below this one :)

    Simple question: Is there a reason not to use these capacitors in Tesla coil

    They seem to have very high breakdown voltage, 20kV. Even if it's not that high, I'll only be working with 6kV primary transformer.

    I didn't calculate what capacitance I will need yet, but it seems funny if I would only need one capacitor like this one.
