Try adjusting the contrast potentiometer.
It's obvious that it's the input...
So if you solder up a circuit at home, you can NOT call it homemade because you didn't make any of the parts used in that circuit such as resistors, capacitors, transistors etc.
By testing. Using power supply with adjustable current. You can measure wire thickness with micrometer very accurately.
How much voltage can 10W LED handleView Instructable »
(using your logic)... If i charge capacitor with 2mA, i instantly can get 200A out of it :D? To charge bigger capacitor you will need A LOT of time...If you will want to argue more, then build this circuit, measure output current and then you can say something. Theories without facts are nothing!There are no capacitors mentioned in this instructable. (your imagination created 450v and capacitors:) )
well. you are wrong. 2N3904 can handle max 200mA. So 2.4*0.2=0.48W (U*I=W). And i don't know from where you took that 450v. author said:,,the ones i made were 90 and 180v''. Let's use formula:(I=P/U)0.48W/450V≈0.001A 1mA0.48W/180V≈0.003A 3mAAccording to http://yagitech.blogspot.lt/2011/10/electrical-ha... 1mA trough body not noticeable 1-3mA trough body is mild sensation, not painful
