This is a Compact LED Light on the lines of a COMPACT FLUORESCENT LIGHT. (CFL). It runs on 220 Volts AC or can also be made to run on 110 volt AC, if the value of the CONDENSER is changed to .47uF / 250Volts, AND the RESISTOR is changed to 1K / 1Watt.
Step 1: STEP-1
Items you will need.
30 Extra bright White LED's of 5mm size.
3 Strips of Sun-mica Lamination Board.
One Condenser- value of 0.22uF / 400 Volts.
One Resistor- value of 1K - 1/2 Watt.
Making of the base BOARD.
Three strips of Sun-mica Lamination Board, is cut to size as to make a Triangle to fit the inside of the PVC base of the light. The base is taken from the bottom portion of a fused CFL light, as shown in STEP-3.
The length of the three strips of Sun-mica Lamination Board is to be determined by you, but 4.5 inches will do.
Drill small holes for the legs of the LED to penetrate through the board.
Each 3 sections of the board is laid together and taped with cello tape at the back to reinforce it and hold it together.
