This is the circuit that I drew up. Notice that the input is straight from the mains(240v). Very dangerous. If 110 volts it would require a voltage doubler to give 300+ volts DCto the anode of the tubes. They are in parallel. I have had so many shocks that my hair is now permanently vertical

Hi Geriatric and Dal, my suggestion would be buying 2 disposable camera with flash, then you could use all the electronic (converter and trigger circuits) and keep your hair cool ...

Hi KCan, glad to see you are still around. Forgot to mention using an isolating transformer 240 in 240 out is much safer, no smell of burning hair.

WOW!!



That is technical. Very good, but a bit above what I am comfortable with. I have no hair, so apart from the dance when I get a shock, she wouldn't know to unplug me!



Thank you for sharing.



As my ringflash arrived today, and it works, I will take your advice and stick to that.
