Hi Mr. Mahadev,

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.

2. can we use 3 watt LED with a battery with higher capacity(Ah) to get better back up?

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.

4. what do u think about transformer less charging Circuit in respect of durability and Safety?

I request you to clarify my doubts and need you help. Awaiting for your reply.

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.
