In this project I will show you how I combined a joule thief circuit with a coil and a magnet in order to create a shaking torch which is an emergency flashlight that does not require batteries.Let's get started!
Step 1: Watch the Video!
The video gives you an overview on what is necessary to do to create your own shaking torch. The next steps will contain useful extra information.
Step 2: Order Your Parts!
For the project you will need a joule thief circuit. You can find a parts list for it and the instruction to build it by following this link: https://www.instructables.com/id/Supercapacitor-Jou...
