Dave, I think you mean a negative ion generator? Runs off 12V and generates the static field see link below.

I built my own grass applicator and I guess it cost about 5-6 to make excluding the 12v power supply, basically I needed a negative ion generator, a switch, a metal kitchen sieve, a plastic container with clip on lid and a bit of pipe (and a 12v power supply that I already had). To be honest, for 15 (see flashbang's links) I'd buy a new one given the time it takes to make one but if you're set on building one, it's quite easy to make. I followed Luke Towan's method on YouTube.
