I also have one of these. While running with a 15KV 60ma NST at 120
bps I haven't noticed any temperature change. I was getting 38" streamers.
But when I started running at 1.2 KVA using 10kv 120ma at 240bps I also
noticed some temperature change, only a few degrees, after a 30 second
run. At this point I was getting 54" arcs to the ceiling and didn't want to
rase the power due to fire hazards. :)
