This is a great beginner electronics project that can be done in under an hour for around $5. Here is a search link for the ionizer I used (this is an affiliate link): http://ebay.to/1Tc8IIZ

You can see my video building the previous Static Electricity Generator here: https://youtu.be/GGx83KppSCQ
The generator featured in this video is less powerful than my old versions as the electronics are less capable of high currents and voltages, but it produces enough of an effect to put on a good show. This version also doesn’t hurt as much to use. My previous model shocks hard! Both versions have their place for various demonstrations.
This is the video where I first discovered this ionizer: https://youtu.be/j0ov27wqB3o
This video explains some of the circuitry involved: https://youtu.be/ep3D_LC2UzU
