really? just use a string of these? cool. im looking for more surge protectors, sounds like they are basically the same, i have found that more gaps help
But that may be because the primary Cap is brutally under-rated & letting the gap fire before 12kv has built up.

I never really read up on making proper water caps, im getting practically a plasma bottle here, which could only lower performance Lol

anyway till the place i get components from actually gets something on the shelf, the ghetto-style gap & pretend capacitor will have to do lol
Thanks for the link to that product!
