1w LED (multiple; 6-7) fade in and fade out ? Answered
Heya fellas! Is there any chance that someone could help me out with this task? Almost nailed it for the weaker ones (5 mm) but for some reason i'm losing voltage really hard when i'm connecting them in parallel (12V supply) and it seems that some voltage is lost before that as well because when i compare it to the one simply connected directly to the 3.7v power supply and one on the board - the first one is much brighter than the second one.
And if I try to add 1w one after 5mm - it just won't light up and almost nulifies all the brightness of the 5mm one before it on the board.
My English and explanations might be pretty bad because i'm completely new to this and have a reeeeeally limited time before the event i'm planning to create this thing for (cosplay event to be precise).
So I think that i've got less time now for anything else than a simple direct connection of 6-7 1W LED to 3.7V supply (to make it real bright for every piece of my lantern) but i really want to make that fade in and fade out feature.
I saw some really helpful things at this place before and I really do hope that someone will help me out and get lots of + to their karma and will be mentioned when asked (about LED scheme and help) for sure.
Scheme i've been working with is attached to this post. And if you'll need some extra info - i'll be more than happy to provide it ( i just don't know what is required to be honest)
Thank you for reading!
