Can this be used? (Noob question)

Hi all, a complete noob here.
Could this thing be used to build the fusor? It basically takes in 3-6v and gives out 50kv. There are also many 400kv ones too. Please understand that I'm a complete noob with very little parts available to buy where I live, if this question is stupid!

Also this question is sorta addressed in the FAQ.

Thanks John and Ian for being the watchdogs here. Rules are rules.

Quickly, to the question.......No! absolutely not! These little junk ion generators are the whimpiest of the whimps. Sold by Electronic Gold Mine and others they are worthless....Perhaps even for ion generation....

You need power for a fusor! Figure on about 10,000 times the energy this little pip-squeak is capable of.

As suggested in the posts above, register properly and then..... READ the FAQs!
