Avid trekkies may recognize the configuration from TNG episodes where flashlight type devices referred to as "palm beacons" were used. I've included a couple of screen shots from a scene in TNG episode "Disaster" where Riker is using one. I found the design to appear functionally efficient and to have versatility potential thus I decided to mimic it.
To create a multipurpose LED lighting device that is compact, lightweight, portable, has a construction topology that makes it comfortable for hand-held use and multi-stable for hands-free use, and has high intensity light output. Accomplish this by using a combination of repurposed materials, and readily available low-cost materials.
- Dimmable oscillator driver circuit for the LED array.
- Optional circuit to trickle-charge the battery from a conventional wired phone line. (yes they still exsist)
