20 LED’s on Mobile Charger

About: Now I am a retired person, who enjoys life and making small things to pass the time keep myself busy.


Many of my friends at Instructables asked me to glow some LED’s by a mobile Charger. Most of the time your Mobile Charger is not in use. So I thought of using it to glow a LED Night lamp as it has a DC power supply.

Step 1: Items You Will Need….

Mobile Charger – one

Specification---Input 240VAC Output 5.3 VDC 500mA.

20 Very bright White LED’s. of 5mm size.

A piece of Flex Board to use as base for the LED’s.

A female socket for the Mobile Charger Pin.

Wire, solder etc.

Step 2: Fix the LED's.

Fix the LED’s 5 to a row of 4.

Follow the Circuit Diagram.

Maintain Polarity.

Step 3: Connect the LED's

Connect the Mobile Charger to the LED Light and
plug in the Charger.

Step 4: Plug In...

Your night lamp is ON.
