    If I remember correct it's either a 9.5v or 12.5v battery, looks like one you would use to operate a gate motor...

    Ok just a few questions. how far should the electrodes be apart. the glue sticks you use with a glue gun, can that be used in the build? i want to put the wire in a viberglass hollow rod and want to seal the front part where stainless stail point comes out. or could it be toxic?
