It's not a transformer. They are used of A/C systems.
It must be a DC/DC converter.

Check with the manufacturer of your ignition system before trying it.
For the price of the booster $275 you could buy a high output coil.

Make sure your battery is in good condition and fully charged.

Doc here, :pimp:

Agreed with Vicrod, It must be some kind of step up transformer driven by some type of "Chopper" Transistors, with a duty cycle..If I were to guess, Be interesting to "Peek" inside..Current output must be limited (as small as that looks).

Lot of money for +3 volts..

Have you looked into an 18 volt battery pricing? Less parts to fail..

Doc :pimp:

No, I'm not all that interested in it. A guy I work with is though. He thinks it would be a good addition to his DUI ignition system in his hot rod. Not worth it in my opinion.

ETA, you could buy a MSD 6AL for less.
