Charge them up and throw them at cats?

With that kind of voltage rating first thing that comes to mind is tube amp power supplies.

Heh, you could do a railgun. Probably wouldn't have a whole lot of power with that amount of capacitance/voltage however.

Tubes are small electron accelerators at between 200 and 500 VDC (big tubes can use even higher voltages)

For a brief explanation try here

Those could be useful for someone building a big mother of an amp...

Tubes are all good, really nice sound eh.

Better than the cat idea, charge one up and tell you girl friend that it's a dildo!
