Sir: can you please tell me how i can use my sensor light w/c is 110vac here in Manila(220Vac) w/out using step down transformer (transformer consumes electricity even the unit is idle).

thanks, Romy Reyes Manila Phil. (

You will have to use a 110v Transformer, there is no other way.......

I FINALLY made it work using 4 leds---

NOT perfect--smoking resistor----but it WORKED---

A Loose Nut Behind the Soldering Iron May be the PROBLEM---

For 220volts use 0.22uf 400 volts
and for 110 volts use 0.47uf 250volts
Resistors in both cases use 1K/half watt.

dear sir, i need your help to construct a LED tube light consist 100 5mm leds dual power operated (AC 220 and DC). when AC power is goes off the led load shift automatic on battery power which auto charge during AC 220 is available and led tube run on 220 VAC directly.
Please help me to prepare a circuit diagram and mail me my email address
i shall be thankful to you for this

AC and DC circuit for LED's are completely different so it is not possible to mix the two types of current.
