DC to DC transformer...Dangerous?
I have a DC-DC step-up transformer. I input 8 AA batteries (~11volts) and it outputs ~750-1500volts. Would it be ok if the voltage accidentally crossed path with my heart?
Or is it perfectly fine to touch?

u shouldn't be touching higher DC voltages stepped up from the battery voltage.
u can get an electrical shock.
bc the electric mouse traps uses 4 C batteries which produces 6V and the internal step up transformer steps it up to higher voltage killing a mouse.

Depends on what current that high voltage source can deliver. It's unlikely to be high, say 1mA. At that voltage/current, you'll get a painful zap but it won't do you any harm.

Nice try. It's not a DC transformer. There is no such thing. But go ahead and try that thing across your heart. Let us know how it goes.
