After looking at your induction video with wire around battery again, I do not think I was correct when I said it was acting like secondary of transformer. The current in the battery is not flowing in proper direction and there are not enough turns to get over 350 volts. Rather, it seems to be just another way of making a capacitor plate. You certainly do come up with some very interesting circuits. Thanks again for sharing your results.

You could check the capacitor coupling theory by replacing the wire around the battery with a capacitor (maybe 1 uF) connected to the negative or positive terminal of battery (whichever forms the outer case of the battery).
