1. A rectifier circuit that gives approximately double the output voltage of a conventional half-wave vacuum-tube rectifier by charging a capacitor during the normally wasted half-cycle and discharging it in a series with the output voltage during the next half-cycle.
2. An electric circuit for rectifying alternating current in which two rectifiers give double the output voltage available using a single rectifier.
