For this Bridge Rectifier what input AC voltage could it bare?
I'm a newbie and was looking for 1N4001 and landed on this page.

Thanks for the turorial.

As it is made of 1n4007 diodes it should handle up to 1A at 1000 volts :-)

Thank you for prompt reply.

Found a data sheet saying 1N4003 is capable of handling 200v.

So for from regular Home AC power in india its 220~230v, if I use 4x1N4007, what would be the output in Volt & Amp(don't know how much the power line Amps)?

Your end product looks nice, but I am always nervous about heat when soldering diode leads, even when I am using a heat sink to protect the diodes. Soldering close to the body of the diodes, even with a low wattage soldering iron, puts a lot of heat very close to the insides of the diodes.

Plus: If you solder your self made component into a bigger circuit, one of the internal junctions may melt open. If you plug it into a bread board, a not perfect junction may break due to mechanical stress.

Very cool! I have tried making something like this the first time I was studying bridge rectifier. But failed.
