- Produces spark without recharging
- Strong frictional charge produces by plastic base
- Manually operated capacitive generator
- Convenient classroom teaching apparatus
Eisco Labs Electrophorus Demonstration produces a strong spark repeatedly, without recharging. The base is thick plastic with four rubber feet attached for convenient handling. The plastic material produces a strong frictional charge when rubbed with fur or other material due to the triboelectric effect. The 18 cm diameter aluminum plate is designed to eliminate any sharp edges which could cause leakage. An insulating handle is attached.
