I even tried up to 9V. Or am I missing something? The two LEDs light up fine. I made a circuit that works for the opposite reason: So there is no calculation besides the technical sheet can be used to determine the drop? It says 5v reverse voltage and 1.

‘Resistance’ of an LED

The transistor must have a very small saturation voltage andif possible, high gain. The 3 batteries AAA size are 1. Haikal – I said in my answer that the order of the components doesn’t matter. Since the best I have available is ohm 0,5W I think I have 2 options available: There’s a problem loading this menu right now.

Is there a small cheap driver that could boost the voltage to 3.

I am currently oed limited mod requests. The special “low saturation” transistor BD was not very good, just a bit better than BC But if you need the full brightness of the LED, you’ll need the external transistor circuit. The important part of the converter is the transformer.

How do 40na go about it? I also included a link to the data sheet for the driver. Some of the modders may have a couple of spares; might check the Homemade and modified BST? A LED’s luminosity is determined by the current, and the same current passes through all LEDs so they should all three light evenly.


Most of the time, you should not connect the LED directly to power without putting a resistor in series to limit the current and match the LEDs the characteristic forward current Unless you have a string of LEDs in series that match the voltage source. How many volts should I give it? Haikal – Be sure to have enough voltage drop over the resistor you need a resistor!

How much voltage to give my IR LED? – Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange

So I split the Vcc line to 2 x ohm 0,5W in parallel, effectively using ohm resistance from each, but halving the energy loss factor, and then after each of the 2 resistors, a second ohm in series, to add the rest of the required resistance, and manage the rest of the heat loss. The amperage going through R1 affects the 1.55v output and makes the efficiency worse.

So there is no calculation besides the technical sheet can be used to determine the drop? Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go.

Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. Read the datasheet, and pay attention to the value of R1 in the schematic on 1.5 7.


We usually found it on during that time, and would twist it off for him. If anybody here speaks Czech and wants to comment, correct or improve, feel free to do so.

Now there’s a big mistake in Malife ‘s schematic, and that’s the absence of a resistor. A red LED will drop about 2. The experiments showed that the choice of the transistor is very important.

For the two LEDs that will be about 6V – 4. It gives the impression that is current regulated, but its not, the pulses are current regulated whatever that means in the real world In our case, the battery’s voltage is equal to the sum of the voltages over LEDS and resistor.
