AA vs D battery in my home made disposable camera handheld flash? Answered
I ripped apart a disposable camera, took out the flash board, and with some soldering and some various wires and plastic boxes, tin foil and a cup from laundry detergent... made a handheld flash gun for long exposure... Its cool...
Anyway, it takes ONE AA battery.
Of course an AA discharges 1.5 volts.
A D sized battery also discharges 1.5 volts.
Can i use the D battery in the basic setup, since the voltage is the same, to make the flash gun last longer between battery changes? Is there any difference between an AA and a D other than the size and overall capacity? Will this blow the capacitor? Thanks!!!
