Yes, any stun gun circuit will do.

They lie their faces off about the voltage produced by the way.... That thing doesn't even put out close to 1MV.

That is like the same concept I had too. I just bought a recargable cheeta 650kv, just because a 100kv one was rated at 65kv just because I wanted a rechargable one too. I thought that might help you, you can get a rechargable one on ebay. Are the recharable one's worth the money?

Depends how much you use them and how much the batteries cost you.

Use it a lot then rechargeable

Every now and again then batteries

Usually the length of the spark is the issue with these, not whether or not it sparks. The longer the spark is, the more ignition points you could have (or maybe one of those spark stick things made from copper pipe...I can't remember what they are called).
