Step 7: The Rectifier:

The bike generates AC electricity. But your LED headlight requires DC. So to solve this problem a rectifier is used. It converts AC to DC current. Solder the four diodes and the capacitor as given in the circuit. And the rectifier is ready.
<p>Hi,</p><p>What is the resistor for the 1 watt led /thanks </p>
Excellent work bro. <br>i also wana make 1 headlight for my hero honda cbz . <br>can u plz guide me...i wana use 1w 3 led and 5mm led.. <br>plz guide me abt resistance which one 1 use for that <br> <br>thanks
Go on with your project and feel free to ask any questions!!! <br>
are those 1w led 's in the center? <br>
what is the view angle of those led's?
I want to make a configuration similar to this for extra lighting for my truck. I live in the US. I just need to figure out the resistors I need to use. <br>
Hi krstn1, you can use the LED Calculator app available online. Just type in google search LED Calculator, enter the details and it will give you a detailed schematic for your project. All the best !!!
you said; LED headlights are not DOT approved, so use it at your own risk. and I was wondering where you are from because I didnt know you cant use LEDs Awsome job by the way :)
I am from India, where the traffic are rules are not at all strict. But in the US, any lights installed on the exterior of a vehicle requires permission.
oh wow!<br>From where did you get the high power leds in india?
I got the High Power LEDs from Lamington Road, Mumbai.
ooh :(<br>How much did you pay for them?<br>I saw them on ebay but i think they might be fleecing me<br>Any place you know of in delhi?
a neater work could have been done if you designed a pcb
