Using this small of a coil I couldn't get it to start without the variable capacitor.

But you may have better luck then I did.

You might want to try some very small caps around 5 to 10 pf if you can't find a variable capacitor.

Hi folks, well I was able to get slayers small exciter working on 12 volts.
I used a 2n4403 PNP transistor
1 mega ohm base resistor
and used the diode plug, the small glass diodes, to power an led to to probably 20% full brightness.
When placing a small capacitor across L2, it does lessen the external field, though the led gets dimmer and transistor heats up.
Though without cap the led is brighter and the volt meter is all over the place when measuring the battery voltage.

At 24 volt input, i can light an led and light a small fluoro bulb to 1/4 brightness.
Not sure the amp draw, though the battery doesn't really go down if at all when checking with circuit off.

Maybe slayers setup is at a sweet spot of coil ratio as someone said.

Not sure how you got 9 leds in series to light up that bright slayer, though i am using 24 gauge for L1 and 18 gauge for L2 so that may have a bearing on it.
I'll continue to try and see what i can do with this, any tips would be appreciated, thanks.
peace love light

hey skywatcher just a suggestion on measuring amp draw- use a 1 ohm resistor in series with the battery, and just measure the voltage drop across the 1 ohm resistor. For some reason you have to re tune the exciter if you just hook up a multimeter in series with the circuit (i think it has something to do with the internal resistance of the multimeter)- that and i blew a multimeter from the RF feedback because i don't have a filter.

i have really been meaning to make a full sized exciter- been playing with the stiffler stuff and having some fun, but the slayer exciter seems more fun to play with. quick note- ksp 2222a transistors work great but they get kinda hot

You may want to solder your leds in series on a pcb board.

The breadboard might hinder your performance with the extra mass.

Also one thing I noticed with these very small coils at higher frequencies.

If you connect an AV plug right off the collector of the transistor.And measure the current and voltage across the AV plug.

You will notice there is a lot of voltage and current across the AV plug that can be used to recharge other batteries or caps.

This will not affect the light output or current intake at all.

Hi ricksl, thanks for the info, yes i forgot about that method.
at 12 volt input, I used a 1 ohm to check it, problem is it shows .011 volts with volt meter one way, then when i alternate meter probes it changes to .001 volts. not sure what is accurate.
Hi slayer, thanks for the tips. I connected another diode plug off the collector and it is charging a couple AA's, though not sure how much charge it's imparting.
Last night at 24 volt input, i let the smoke out of the 2n4403, nasty smell.

It fried because i was adjusting the pancake coil position and that seems to cause an issue with the oscillation and caused massive heat in the transistor and poof, smoke cloud.
These circuits sure seem finicky, maybe I'll make a larger 1" diameter L1 that will fit inside this pancake coil i just made, seems the larger coils have more output for less voltage input.

Mini Slayer ferrite exciter

Hi Great too see all the mini slayer exciter coil experiments and I would like to share with you mine which I made a fair while ago but got weigh leighed on some other projects but I have found that the output can be extremely high and easily light cfl's and tubes.
I found that to get a high output from a very small coil,you need to increase the inductance of the circuit as the small amount of wire used,may not be sufficient so i inserted a ferrite rod from a loopstick ariel and this transformed the circuit.
Lidmotor has done this with a larger L2 a while back but for a very small L2,ferrite is vital.
The circuit is completly dead output wise without the ferite rod although the circuit is drawing current and if anyone has built one and it seems dead,try inserting a ferrite and it may increase the output of your working coils too.
The circuit was running on 4.5v @ 60mA using a BC182 transistor but will run on lower or higher voltages.The L2 is 4 turns of solid core bell wire.The L1 was either 28swg or 30swg,wound onto a 90mm x 15mm solder tube as a former.The start resistor is 24k,left connected.
Here is a vid and pic.Hope this helps and great work everyone.Jonny
Here is a vid of it running.

skywatcher im willing to bet you it is the feedback that goes into the batteries during operation, similar effects take place in dr. stifflers setups were a good amount of alternating current is actually present in the powered lines from the battery, thats the reason meters fry (when in series) its because of the feed back pulses. This is also the reason the battery terminals are very hot when you use an av plug and led to test for fields, of course the area of excitation plays a role too from just being a metal mass, but this causes it to a greater extent. This can also be bad for the batteries if you plan to use these configurations for extended periods of time.

so with a .001 volt drop over a 1 ohm resistor there is a milliamp of current being pushed back into the battery at... i think it was fm frequencies these oscillate on right? ive been meaning to make that source isolator (best way i can describe it) device that filters feedback from the rails, but i am adamant against ordering things online.

best of luck with your tuning i know that caused me grief.

Thanks to Lidmotor and Kooler for there videos.

This is a video of a Hartley Oscillator Replication.

In the video I show it running off 1.5v 6v and 12v.And lighting nine leds all in series.

Performance still needs some work but it is a very interesting circuit.

Good video. I was surprised that the frequency was that high. Maybe if we tweek the circuit a bit here and there we can get the performance even better. I am guessing that the the coil with the ferrite rod is where the antenna coil is shown in the diagram? I tried putting a Dr. Stiffler SEC tower there and got nothing. I guess it is all in the tuning as Doc always said.

yes the coil with the ferrite rod is the antenna coil.

Both coils are around 80 turns of 26 awg.
The primary coil is 21 turns of the 21 awg plastic coated wire.

hey guys..
theres four other ways you can make this and one way you can get 30 ish % brightness from a led and it would not read on my micro amp setting on my meter..
funny thing is someone stole 4 of my solar lights in my front yard 3 nights ago..
i have had ppl stop and ask me to sell them my solar lights to them cause they saw how bright they are at night because i use this circuit plus 10 leds at the same draw as the solar circuit which is 22ma's..
so i moved my other lights to the backyard..

if you use 4 inductors (100uh ) and 2 diodes (bat46).. in just the right places you can watch the battery leak rather than run down..
but thats all i will say here..
hartley is a very kool circuit..

Better Mouse Trap

@Kooler (Robbie)
I could not remember exactly where you posted that Hartley circuit but I am sure glad that you did. I'm sorry to hear that someone took your solar lights. That tells me that --YOU-- have built the "better mouse trap", people saw it, and when you wouldn't sell it (or give it away)----they just took it. That is a statement on the situation of our world today. It is sad. Anyway thanks for all the work that you have done on these projects and for sharing. I am curiuos about the "four other ways you can make this" but I have studdied your work and will go back and look at it. I think I remember the circuit with the four inductors and two diodes.

@Slayer
Thanks for posting the video with the circuit diagram. I was way off in how I thought that you were joining the two circuits.

Hartley - Slayer oscillator

@Kooler: great that you brought up the Hartley circuit

@Slayer: excellent video, it really explains how to build the Hartley-Slayer, very good idea to combine the two oscillators

@Lidmotor: I guess you have a Ferrite core in the coil (with the free end leading to the little two eyed monster)? When experimenting with cement-batteries, I observed that blinking when driving Joule Thief circuits with them. Looking with a scope, I saw that the oscillation stops and restarts. It seems, the weak cement battery breaks down and recovers (which gives the rhythmic blinking). After a few weeks I had to water the cement batteries occasionally and after a few months they stopped working. Some stuff builds up on the metal surfaces (aluminium/copper) and isolates the metals from the cement, it looks like corrosion.

I wounder why one needs the Ferrite core in the 80T coil? To get more induction? May be one could use a toroid instead of the Ferrite rod (which is a bit difficult to find)? Or one winds the 80 turns onto a big iron nail?

Greetings, Conrad

@Slayer Great new Circuit.This is what this thread is for and that looks like a pretty nice "Variant" .
I would be interested to hear your thoughts on how it compares to a Slayer exciter output wise as it looks really strong in your vid and your second tower looks like a great reciever tower.I bet it would work further away.
If you can combine a hartley oscillator then a colpitts oscillator should work too.
Thanks for sharing.Jonny
@Lidmotor.Great quick rep.This looks like a great circuit and it just goes to show that there are still lots for us to discover.
The fact that this circuit runs on so little make it very useful and it should proove very useful in your cement battery experiments.
How does it look on a scope compared to a standard Slayer exciter if there is such a thing Nice work.Jonny.

@ Lidmotor

Great video..Thanks for showing this run on such a low power source.


@ Conradelektro

Thanks..The ferrite core in the antenna coil does help with the output for the Hartley Oscillator.I haven't tried a ferrite toroid yet but it should work.

When I first set this up I left the L1 coil disconnected.I tuned the Hartley Oscillator to the strongest output with the lowest input then connected the L1 coil.

@ JonnyDavro

I think the output is close to the same.But this setup will run with a lot less current intake allowing us to run this at higher voltages. I tried it off a 12v transformer that was @ 17.5v the field was very strong.The little transistor did get warm but never did get hot.

The load was 40w fl tube and 39 leds that were very bright.

@Conrdelektro
Thanks for the description of your cement battery experiments. I am going to let mine go completely dry and see if there is any power left months from now. I suppose that I could simply "bake" one in the oven for a few hours at low heat as an easy test--- or maybe throw one on the BBQ. That is really why I am working with these low power circuits. It is my hope that the cement cell will produce some power bone dry. Then it is just a case of adding more cells to get the power that you need to run something. If mine go dead like yours did I will not be surprised. It will have been just another interesting galvanic cell experiment.

In the video I do not have a ferrite rod in that coil with the two LEDs attached. I am using the ferrite core on the small soda straw coil instead as a tuning point. In the video the rod isn't even in that coil. The variable capacitor is doing the tuning instead. I found out that you can configure this circuit in several ways and it will still work. The trick will be to find the best way. Actually it is hard to beat the basic Slayer Exciter circuit. It is so simple and effective. The lure of this particular Hartley oscillator was that it will run on micro amps.

@Slayer
I burned up a few MPSA06 transistors trying to run mine on 12 volts so I am going to wind up a new Hartley coil like you are using. My amp draw is way too much at the higher voltage. I tried a TIP31 but the results were not great. It has to be my coil mismatch.

Micro slayer ferrite exciter

Hi.I did a bit more work on my mini slayer ferrite exciter today and ended up with a micro slayer ferrite exciter measuring 4cm which will light a fluorescent tube on a 1.5v AA and it may even be possible to make it smaller and still retain a high output.
I wound the new coil on a smaller diameter tube (empty permanent marker pen) to get the ferrite rod closer to the windings.This circuit will not work without the ferrite rod.You can also use a very low turn L2 coil.
I think the wire I used was 30swg but the wire was a lot finer than I usually use but as the coil is so small,it does not take long to make.
Here is a vid.Jonny

Great job with your micro exciter.

I tried to make one even smaller but it didn't work.

I wrapped three turns around a 22uH choke but no luck with it.

Hi @jonnydavro,
Great job, Jonny. Yesterday I did got the loopstick ferrite Slayer to light partially a 20W CFL. I measured the L in the Secondary, and it was 759uH. I made the Primary to be 8uF, as well as the L2b, which is wound in another loopstick ferrite.
The current consumption was high: 180mA, and at 12V DC.
I would like to replicate your circuit, but I have several questions with regard to your setup, if you can kindly help me to clarify :
1) The number of turns of your secondary coil. I think your wire gauge is AWG32~ AWG34.
2) I saw a choke in your circuit, is that the L2b in the original Mini of Slayer? How much inductance does it have?
3) do you use one MPSA06, or any other transistor?
It is impressive to light a FL just with an AA battery!
And thanks for your valuable help, keep on working, Jonny.
P.D.: Sorry to all, I will post photos later on with regard to the improved Mini

2cm Micro Slayer ferrite exciter

Hi .I managed to do some experiments with the 4cm Micro slayer ferrite exciter today and was quite suprised by the results.
The first test I did was to find the minimum run voltage and this turned out to be a head scratcher as it lit a blue led right down to 0.252v but the circuit continues to oscillate right down to 0.206v.This is using a bc182 silicon transitor .
I also tried my rectangle reciever tower and it lit a neon wirelessly on a 1.5v AA so that means we may be able to run some other circuits wirelessly.
The wireless field is suprisingly strong for such a small coil and I can detect the field at a distance of 12" with an av led detector.
I then decided to try a smaller coil and wound a 2cm L1 on another marker pen tube former and used the same L2 from the 4cm coil which is 1 1/2 turns of 18g mag wire.The way the L2 works with this setup is the more turns,the less the current draw any way it fired up no problem on a 1.5v AA and would light a neon and lots of leds but not a tube so I replaced the led indicator with a 4148 diode and that fired of the tube.
The added inductance of the ferrite rod seems to reduce the amount of wire which is normally needed and it has to be in close proximity to the windings.
@arron5120.Hi.The amount of turns is not critical for this as a 4cm one and a 2cm one both work well.What is important is the wire and the presense of a ferrite rod in close proximity to the windings.It will not work without the ferrite which is from an am/fm ariel,mines from maplins.The wire I used I think was either 32,34 or36swg but I am not sure but I will be able to clarify the exact gauge after I have been to the electronics shop which will probably be next weekend but the wire is the thinnest I have used for a slayer exciter and the start of the L1 has to be secured in the breadboard with the start resitor to jam it in.
There is no choke in the circuit,just got a few other unused circuits on the breadboard.
It is the bare bones Slayer exciter circuit with just a transistor and a 24k start resistor which I leave connected.I put an Led indicator from emmiter to base and swapped this for a 4148 diode when I used the 2cm coil.So to sum up.1 transistor,1 24k resistor,1 LED an L1 coil an L2 coil 18swg mag wire and 1 ferrite rod.
You can use an mpsa06,that is what I used in the vid but today I tried a BC182 and this also worked well for lighting tubes and it was this transistor which runs right down to 0.206v.
Also if you are taking amp readings,try and measure across a 1 ohm resistor so you keep the meters internal resistors out of the circuit.
I don't think you will have any problems getting this going and thanks for trying it out.Any problems just ask.happy experimenting.Jonny
@totoalas.Hi .I can't remenber anyone trying an up and down twin L1 and it sounds like a great idea.
Have you tried the old floating tranny mod with a 2nd mpsa06 connected collector-base,base-emmitter to get the draw down?Jonny
@Slayer.Thanks Slayer.I have tried choke too with similar results but I don't think the L1 coil likes to be wound,multi layered,back and forth as it seems to cancel the field somewhat and send amp draw up.Cheers.Jonny

Hi Jonny
Wireless is in more coils is out lol
Ur micro exciter is the cheapest so far to build
thanks to all of you SLAYER IS ALIVE AND KICKING

the floating tranny mod Mpsa06 will switch off my circuit when I inserted t
Also with 12v and tranny mode easily fried the Mpsao6 in the circuit
UPDATE
By adding 1 nf from base to L1 the current went down to 50 ma and can run @ 12 v with not so hot transistor

Need to tweak moe heheheh toroid plus 4148 on the list plus ur circuit of course
CHEERS

In this video I just wanted to show how adding a small variable capacitor across the power source you can controll the current intake.

Using the the capacitor across the power source along with the one across the L2 coil.You can still light the leds as low as 1 mA off 12v and still get fairly good light.


Around 7.5 mA @12v the leds are around full brightness.

Hi Slayer
Back to 12 V as standard for home lighting circuit using one source battery to supply multiple Slayer Circuits
WOWWWWWWW

Attached s some video we can ponder upon and maybe integrate to the Slayer as well

cheers
