Joule Thief To Amplify Joule Thief?

(1/2) > >>

trevstar:
Once again let me apologize if this  has been covered already.  I need your expert opinions. Let us say in a basic joule thief  you have .5 volts input and it lights up a 3 volt LED. Is it possible to replace the LED with ANOTHER joule thief which could then amplify the current to maybe 18 volts?   


The only issue I can think of is that the oscillating  current from the first joule might not be effective to run the 2nd joule  and might mess up the transistor operation in the 2nd joule thief.


Thanks.

forest:
yes,if you find a joule thief which can amplify current  ::)

trevstar:
Well, to be precise.
Do you think it can increase 1.5 volts to 3 then the
2nd Joule thief raise it to 18?

forest:
well, you should ask electronics gurus, but I do not see why it would not be possible with proper arrangement. You can simulate it with cheap chinese step up converters. Take 1.5V battery and one dc-dc converter to step up voltage to 9V and store in capacitor, then step up from there to 24V for example using second dc-dc converter. But that way you cannot step up power or energy

Why would you think that. in an interview, Tesla said he found cold energy could be produced by narrow pulses and also said above 700hz energy flows over the body a skin effect use that if you will.
