You can feed them a little higher voltage but not if the secondary is
unloaded. For instance I could get away with feeding my neons about
170 volts when I was charging my capactors. This gave me about 21,250
volts on the secondary. The problem is that neons are dry
transformers which are center tapped. That is the weak link. Usually
what happens is that one of the sides of the secondary arcs to the
case and forms a carbon track. This is like a dead short. End of story.

It's not the secondary that will burn up but the primary.

burn up the secondary but i was just wonderin if any one has done it.
