Solar powered blinking Led (with photo switch) Answered
I was wondering if anyone has or will post an instructable showing how to build a self-contained solar/rechargeable blinking LED (or LEDs)
I have a telephone pole I would like to have illuminated for oncoming traffic. Reflective tape isn't cutting it. I was thinking a LED strip that blinked would be a better "notice" to drivers.
It would have to be self-contained and powered given the location, hence the solar/rechargeable aspect. It would also have to turn on at dusk and off at dawn. (off when light out, on when dark, so a photo switch needed)
Any ideas how this can be done? I was thinking hacking a solar powered yard light to power a LED strip but I have no idea how the electronic parts work or if the charge is enough to do so. I am sure there are parts in one of those lights that I can use. Harbor Freight is my buddy.
Any help appreciated.
