Low Cost LED Light Using Old Mobile Battery





Introduction: Low Cost LED Light Using Old Mobile Battery

This is very low cost and efficient LED light System ,using waste material .

This is better than HOME LIGHT product from eveready

because u can recharge it from your nokia mobile charger .
it contains 22 LEDs so it is very bright.

and you can use more than 24 hrs on every charging.

Step 1: Requrements

All stuff you need

1. [box]
1. [nokia charger female connector]
(u can get it from any nokia charger converter ,that converts big to small connectors).
1.[10 ohm resister]
1.[100 ohm 1/2watt resister]

22 .[WHITE LEDs]
1. [old any phone battery 3.7 volts]
1. [nokia charger for charging]

Step 2: The Circuit

This is very easy circuit.

Step 3:

take a empty box

Step 4: Measure for Hole

take box and measure for holes.
then mark for hole also mark holes.

Step 5: Insert Switch

Step 6: Insert LEDs

insert LEDs as shown below

Step 7: Connect Every Thing As Shown in Circuit

connect every thing as shown in circuit.

Step 8: Final Product

That is ur final project

U can use it more than 24 Hrs.
and just charge it 1 Hr every time u need.

this is my first instructable so let me know if i m wrong.
Thanks every one !!!!!!

    and is it possible to use a solar panel to the project with the LDR, what size of solar panel would i require as my village receives alot of sunlight. so it becomes easier for us to charge. thanking you sir.

    Hi is it possible to add an LDR to the project ? if yes where can i add it?

    Hello fantastic idea. I am looking for solutions for my project making lamps out of beer cans and the best thing I found was to light them with old phone chargers. Your idea is cool I can make them wireless and rechargeable!

    how to add charging indicator light in this project plz tell me

    Did you wire all the LED'S in seires?Because I see that you only used 1 resistor.I think it was running of 12vdc.

    no buddy all are in series . the resister is for only work as protector . i m  using 3.7 volt nokia batt not 12 volt

    How are the LEDs wired together - parallel? Not familiar with calling resistors registers... L

    The picture says series, but they must actually be parallel considering the battery voltage used. A better question is how quickly will it fry the lithium ion cell with no charge regulator circuit.


    ya man,the li-ion battery cannot be charger directly from the charger output!!!
    it requires a "intelligent" charger. built around a li-ion charger IC such as the bq2000 from T.I.check this out.usually such charge regulator circuits are built-in to the mobile phone!!
