They don't mention what voltage to use, I am gonna guess 3V or two D cells would do it. Something that I will have to try. I made a tool for checking automobile coils, when cars still had ones that were testable. It was just a switch with a capacitor wired across it. You disconnected the points or blocked them open and hooked the leads from the switch across the coil. They you turned on the ignition and cycled the switch on and off. Spark = OK, no spark = bad. Never thought to try it with a small engine, never had any idea what voltage the magnets would generate.
