<p>Hi Mr. Mahadev,</p><p>I saw you simple LED rechargeable torch project and I am excited. Well I am not an Electronics Professional or a graduate but I am quite interested in Electronics. Anyways I have a few clarification to make I..e 1. What could be back up do we get if we use 1watt LED. </p><p>2. can we use 3 watt LED with a battery with higher capacity(Ah) to get better back up?</p><p>3. what if we build the Charger Circuit inside the Torch instead of having Charger separate? With that we can connect the torch to the mains directly.</p><p>4. what do u think about transformer less charging Circuit in respect of durability and Safety? </p><p>I request you to clarify my doubts and need you help. Awaiting for your reply.</p><p>Vinay Rao</p><p>Mangalore, Karnataka State</p><p>Email ID :vr.aryan@gmail.com</p>

Hi vprasad i dont which city u stay, i generally purchase in Hyderabad Koti area or bangalore SP road, or Mumbai Lamington road you can buy from any electronics shops. <br>

Hi sir <br>I am in Coimbatore Tamil Nadu <br>here i searched 3W3.5VDC its cost of 90rupees
Hi i think price is high , it should be around 30-50 max, and more important is 3Watt LED exhaust battery very fast so my suggestion is alternate to this u can use general LEDs 5 nos solder very closely u will get nearest brightness . i have uploaded new image for your reference. u can reach me mdev.diy@gmail.com for any help.
