Introduction: Glow Led's Using AC Current(220-250V)

Note :- THIS INSTRUTABLE SHOULD NOT BE ATTEMPTED UNLESS YOU ARE 
FAMILIAR WITH THE RISKS OF WORKING WITH MAINS VOLTAGE



To make this project you will need only few components.
And you could make your own led lamp or decorating light and many more things that you can imagine. This project is just an example to how to build the circuit for glowing led's using 220-250v.

Step 1: Components Required.

>Led's (number as ur choice)
> 4007 Diode (4).
> 250v Polyfilm Capacitor (1) .
> 50v (100 uf) Capacitor (1).
> 1000 m ohm Resistor (1).
> 0.220 k ohm Resistor { should be big in size else the curcit would not work }  (1). or something near this value. 

Step 2: Adding Diodes.

Place the diodes on the PCB board as shown in the picture.
and follow the image instructions.

 

Step 3: Adding Resistors.

1st add the 1000 m hm resistor.

Step 4: Adding the LED's.



I added up only 3 leds. You could add more leds as your requirment.
The current flow would be automaticly divided or multiply itself as required. 

Step 5: Testing.

The circut is ready to use.

Just plug the wires in the socket and the led's will turn on.

as in the images below.

You can use this example and make more creative things..

Step 6: Implementation.

Using this circuit i created.

>Led Lamp.
>Led Decorative Lights.

You could construct something else using this circuit.
Use Your Brains and start working on it..

Thanks for the clear instructions. II opened a 7-LED lamp and saw a 105K 250V capacitor? and a yellow-violet-yellow-gold resistor (470KOhms, I think). I need to convert this to work with 110-120V input instead of 220-240V. What would I have to change?

pls inform me the resistance power rating........

capacitor code ????? 1000 m ohm???

nice teaching and easy to learn by a learner

Can I connect 10 leds using same circuit?....

how to 50 led's in serial connection pls give me circuit

Thats not a 1000m ohm resistor... Thats 1mega ohm resistor...

And capacitors cant be determined by only volt.. u need to mention the value.. I think its 474k 250volt capacitor.

how can i light up about 100 of this little leds with 220v and how to calculate the value of the resistors and capacitors ?
