You have to add the circuitry as well, and that circuitry amounts to one whole capacitor. Quite simple. Grab an inverter and look at the output. In the vast majority of all cases, you'll find that one lead goes straight to the transformer. The other lead has a capacitor bridging it to the transformer. If the inverter you are looking at has multiple outputs, you'll see that all the outputs are that way. All you have to do is add the appropriate capacitor to the same place the other ones are and you've got another output. The primary function of that capacitor is to allow a brief moment of startup voltage, then afterwards allow a limited flow to the tube. This is why you can't add a tube to the same capacitor, and also why you must select the capacitor based on the tube.
    Yes I know this and that is what I tried. With bad results.

    I don't know what to tell you then. There's no special transformer configuration necessary or anything like that. Is it possible that lady luck threw a bad part your way? I don't want this to discourage the use of an 8 tube inverter - especially if a true 10 tube inverter can't be found. There really isn't much to adding the outputs.

    BTW: Sorry to insult your intellegence earlier with a novel on something you already knew. I made a poor assumption.

    ohh noo, you didnt insult me at all. Trust me, i'm no expert at all this. I'm just going by what I have tried and what works and what doesnt. But any and all information is helpful.

    dude! I already said it is not CCFLs so i am not needing to add another couple of outputs. The problem is purely a power thing. The inverter cannot power 10 tubes properly so 10 tubes would only be as bright as 8 tubes - mayeb less!

    Dude!



























    I was talking to JDC about his high output inverter that wouldn't take another tube. Tsk tsk. You're letting your jealousy get in the way of your work, Scouse. He told you before and I'll tell you again: Our relationship is strictly for business.
