Welcome to my another 2k16 "3 watt energy saver" project. In this project i'm gonna show you how to make your own homemad energy saver by using dead energy saver. Don't waste your old or dead energy saver. It's very easy to build.
So, let's get started.
Step 1: Materials
Materials you'll need
Energy saver (dead or old)
1 watt x 3 smd led
Elfy or UHU
3 watt led driver
Step 2: Disassembling
Take an energy saver and open it like that you don't need upper part of energy saver (recomended for other projects tell you later) we need only lower part of the energy saver.
Step 3: Marking
Put the lower part of energy saver onto the cardboard and marking it with the pen and cut it down according the marking. As you can see that in a picture.
Step 4: Pasting Smd Led
Take a piece of cardboard which one you cut it down according to previous step now put some elfy or UHU on a cardboard and place the smd led according to the picture.
Step 5: Connections
Now connect the all 3 smd leds in a series like (+ - + -) and make a hole at the center of the cardboard then pass the +ve and -ve wires through the cardboard hole and then connect those wires with led driver (+ve goes to +ve and -ve goes to -ve). Also connect the AC wires (which one comes through the lower part of the energy saver) with the led driver at AC side according to the picture.
Step 6: Assembling
Now join the leds cardboard with the lower part of the energy saver by using UHU or hot glue according to the pictures. Finally your 3 watt energy saver is ready to use.
