## Capacitor powered LED flashlight

Long time ago QVC sold a shakeable Flashlight that had no batteries just a shakeable generator and a super capacitor. This flashlight uses a 5vdc 1.5a wall wart to charge the capacitors. To figure out how long it will take to charge the flashlight you use this equation $$T=5R_{currentlimit}C$$ And for total discharge time $$T=5R_{LED}C$$ …

## De Sauty’s Bridge

This bridge is good for measuring Capacitors. What you do is hookup high impedance headphones to the output(V2 in the NL5 Circuit). Then adjust the resistor(s) , you can use the calculator below to find a suitable resistance for the resistors. This works like a Wheatstone bridge except one side has capacitors. The calculator calculates …
