600KV Van de Graaff Generator BUILT


The 600KV model stands 50 inches tall with a 16 inch sphere that can deliver up to a 16 to 20 inch arc at an incredible 60 plus micro amps when ran on high. I like to think of this model as the bulldog of VDGs because of the high capacitance such that when you are 3 feet away, you can feel the piercing electric field, however once you get within 5 inches past striking range, the electrifying current just streams to your hand and in multiple paths. It’s just something you would have to experience to truly appreciate!

Please note:   The built model will need 5 to 10 minutes of assemble becuase the motor and tubing braces will have to be taken off for shipping due to the size of the unit.
