Comment on High Voltage Capacitor Discharge Videos by JonC.

Hi there Kristan, the best thing I’ve found invaluable in my pursuit of high-voltage experimentation has been the support and awestruck look of others 😀 It’s hard to say for any person though as there’s always something specific they may have in mind to work on. Most high voltage equipment is expensive and has a particular use, so unless you’re involved with his experimentation it would be hard to say. One idea you might try is to research some high voltage or high energy physics labs in your area and tell them what your husband does and see if they could arrange a special tour for him. Check with the electric companies and subsidiaries, or if you have any colleges contact their high energy physics labs if they have one. I’m sure you could find some unique and interesting ‘presents’ for a HV loving husband. Best of luck :)
