I love this but I need it to run some 12v LED lights. Any suggestions?

well done zhyar, Try attaching a variable resister so that the sensitivity can be controlled.

how did u connect these 2 ttls base to connector or base to emitter ??

zhyar4kurd (author)monjen722016-08-02

sorry I didn't understand can you elaborate your words ! what is ttls ?

That works with only one transistor if you've got a load with a relative high impedance, such as a Led.

zhyar4kurd (author)rafununu2016-08-02

I tested it with one 2n2222a transistor and it worked but it wasn't so efficient and the LDR was not sensitive also the LED wasn't Bright . so I decided to make it with two transistors and as you can see in the video the results are perfect
