Introduction: HANDPOWERED SERVO TORCH

About: Sciency Guy who is always trying to make some innovative projects,check out what i made in my instructable,Follow me if you think i will help you in making projects! Have a Good Day

In this instuctable ill show how to make handpowered led torch from servo motor

The basic principle behind this project is servo acting as a generator when given mechanical rotation which is similar to bicycle dynamo

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials Required

servo motor

small cube with lid

led

super glue

Step 2: Fixing the Led

make a hole on the cube so as to hold the led and passage of wire

Step 3: Servo Connections to Led

servo is connected to led by the 2 terminals present in both ledand servo motor

connect the led to servo and just give a check by rotating the motor shaft clockwise and anticlockwise

Step 4: Gluing Up

using super glue base of servo is attached to back side of cube

Step 5: Torch Is Ready Just Give a Little Rotation and Its Ready for Action

Step 6: Full Video of Making the Torch

    sorry nice try bit no.1 you kill the led verry soon.

    2 its a flash not a constand light

    3 to smal to handle

    i would put 1 item on it : Z -- you see here the letter Z, thats our paperclip bend it almost like that but with a Vertical LINE not scuare. put a piese of tubing on the side you turn the led on and you can CONTINU have light. (but place a resistor of 500 Ohm and see how bright it is then go lower in Ohm`s by 100ohm every time (not lower then 200\300ohms

    When your Led will burn (soon), add a resistor to the new one, it will last much longer !

    Add a capacitor and a single pole, double throw (SPDT) switch and toggle between charging the cap and using it as a temporary battery.
