    Has anybody tried that? I intend to use a broken (but still functioning) dynamo flashlight to power anything that requires 120 volts, by hooking the transformer from a cheap 4.5v, 5v or 6v adapter. Since I have quite a few of them on hand that I am not using at all, wouldn't it make for a cool project? Sure, it might be dangerous (sure don't wanna throw myself across the room!! ), but it'll only be that low volt range being transformed to 120 volts. So I won't be touching it when I get it done.

    However, if I wanted to be naughty, I could plug it into the wall and get... Well... You know... 400 volts or more and plug that DC end into anything I don't need outside and blow it to pieces. Foolish eh? Lol

    Your thoughts? Sorry if there already was a thread on here, if there isn't, it might just be the coolest one.

    Amps matter more than volts of you're talking danger.
    I wouldn't recommend messing with it.

    Using inductors you can get even 1 million volts.
