Introduction: Make Your Own Super Capacitor Flashlight
CHECK OUT OUR SUPER CAPACITOR FLASHLIGHT KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN:
As promised, I designed a super capacitor charger kit that allows for the user to charge their 5.4v super capacitor bank to roughly 5.33v safely. This is a follow up to my first super capacitor flash light instructable that is linked below. Above are two videos. One is a demonstration video, and one is an assembly video. I've included the charger board schematic and code if you want to make one yourself. I also have a kit available, which I've also posted a link for below.
I am a huge fan of making kits, and I'm soon going to be making an instructable that will show you how to modify your XBOX 360 controller so that it works off of super capacitors, rather than batteries. If you know super caps, you'll know why this is super beneficial! The documentation below, and the videos above will show you in detail how you can build your own super capacitor flash light. If you want to learn more about how the circuitry works, check out the link to the instructable linked below. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask! If you want to know more about super capacitors, check out my guide-to-super-capacitors instructable. If you want to see more super capacitor videos, check out my youtube channel "patrickikis".
This instructable is based off my old super capacitor flash light instructable that goes into more detail. This instructable can be found here: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Super-Capacitor-Flashlight-with-Custom-Charger/
Thanks for having a look at my instructable, everyone =)
