Fragile Balance

How fragile that balance is depends on a number of things. The frequency of the pulse you are using to charge the batteries, the size of the WIRE used in connections. The metal in the wire used to make connections. The size of the batteries in the experiment. The temperature of the room in which the experiment takes place. I can tell you right now that a working Tesla switch will sometimes work in the morning but not in the afternoon. A five degree temperature shift can kill that "fragile balance" you speak of. We know this from experience.
