One Darlington Transistor CFL Driver

This is a modified CFL circuit using only one Darington transistor as the switching device. It takes the place of the 2 transistors that I used in my last video. The system runs on 12 volts. A car ignition coil is used to raise the pulsed voltage high enough to illuminate the bulb.
