Super Cap Led 100 000 Micro Farads




About: My name is marjancho and I love electronics,makeing gadgets,hack and pranks.
Super Capacitor with 100 000 micro farads is conected to led with resistor,and capacitor is charge it with DC power for a vile,about 30 seconds,and then the led wil shine about 5 min
here is pictures how to build this

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

Step 1: What You Need

First you have to find a super capacitor,this kind of capacitor you may find in old vcr,this cap is use for memory for clock in the vcr.
Next part is led diode (any color) and resistor from 220 to 470ohm.
Conect the led diode to super cap,in the corect way-positive to positive,negative to negative
Below i s shown how to conect the parts.

    Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! It's great that you've decided to tell the world about something you've made by publishing an Instructable. We just wanted to let you know that your project still needs a little more work if you want it to be well received on Instructables. Projects that don't include certain basic elements tend not to get the attention that they deserve, and so we'd love for you to check out the list below of what makes a successful Instructable. Successful projects on Instructables include: - clearly written details of a finished project with instruction - as many steps as are necessary to explain your project - clear images that you took of your project for most, if not all of your steps - an intro image - proper spelling and grammar - appropriate cautions or safety considerations I'll give you another opportunity to make any final changes to your project before we publish it. Once you're all set to go, please republish your project and send me a quick comment letting me know that you've made some changes. I'll give it a quick final check to make sure you're on the right path, and then remove this note. Thanks for your submission and we hope to see your project published soon!

    Good point out here that if you charge the cap with less than 5V, say the 3.4V that led might be quite happy with, then you have to remove that resistor.

    I like your instructable but maybe add a pushbutton to it so it is not on while it charges. It looks like you are putting a little to much power into the led. It should not light up to a bright orange color. Adding a pushbutton between the super capacitor and the led will fix all problems. Hope this helps.

    yeah i agree, nothing needs to be done with this instructable whatsoever, just gets straight to the point

    That diagram explains everything really, I know what to do just from seeing it
