    For an AC power supply, i like 12 volts DC output supplying 5 to 10 amps of power output. For batteries i go with two 3.2 volt cells in series, so 6.4 volts DC to the coil. Just connect either type of power source to the ends of the coil. Then monitor the temperature of the coil and switch the power on and off to maintain the desired temperature.
