Joule Thief (Revisited) - Adding Capacitance

In the past Joule Thief circuits really didn't impress me too terribly much. I fealt they had their benefits but seemed, always, at the cost of more current. While that is still true, to an extent, I have also learned from XEE2vids that by balancing the right load, resistance, input voltage, bifilar coil, and capacitance, you actually can get some great results that truly do start to make you question the efficiency factors. Cheers & Merry Christmas!
