How to run higher current through a 555 timer using transistors?
How do I spec the proper transistor to use to boost the current? I'm using a 12V power supply.
I'm also not 100% sure about how to add the transistor to my circuit, though I'm pretty sure that the LED/LED resistor/(+) connection go on the collector side, (-) on the emitter side, and pin 3/base resistor on the base side of the transistor.
Any insights will be greatly appreciated!
