Hey nice to see you again guys! Now I'm back with another instructable. I shall teach you how to make a diy joule thief. This is one of the easiest way to make a joule thief and the most powerful one. For those who don't know what a joule thief is, it's a small circuit that is capable of powering an LED from an old 1.5v cell.

So, let's begin!!!

Step 1: Materials and Tools

To make this project, you'll need:


Magnet wire

A toroid bead

Copper wire

2N3904 transistor or any equivalent one

1k ohm resistor

Wire strippers or scissors

Tape or soldering iron

And patience!

<p>or .... buy a solar light garden for less a dollar an you have a battery,a mini solar panel and a good joule thief</p>

<p>The inductor/coil part is new. Like the author said, the traditional one does not always work.</p>
