  5. 5. The Tesla Coil is Introduced    November 24, 1891 <ul><li>Associated Press - Nikola Tesla has once again made an amazing new invention. He calls it the “Tesla coil”. It produces high current, high voltage, and high frequency AC electricity. The uses for this technology are limitless. He uses the coils to do other experiments having to do with electricity. It operates differently than a conventional transformer. The Tesla coil’s windings are more loosely winded than a conventional transformer. The coils are used in sparkgap radio transmitters. </li></ul>
