Step 1: Circuit Diagram
Follow this simple circuit diagram to connect your components
Step 2: Getting Started
1.Connect the base of BC557 to Emitter of BC 547 using the 33K resistor
2. The collector of the BC 557 should be connected using a cable to the base of BC 547.
3. 1K resistor connects from positive terminal of battery to the transistor BC 557
4. The base of BC557 also connects to BC547 collector suing the ceramic capacitor.
Step 3: Add More LEDs
Add more LEDs to see how far the energy can reach, I added a motor which works fine with no trouble at all....
