Joule Thief Supercap Effects
A new Joule Thief circuit running on 3 supercaps. (2 are 2.3v 10F and 1 is 5.5v .47F) When the supebright led (28600 MCD) burns out after a one second charge to the caps, I can touch my finger lightly to the top of the transistor (2N3904) and the led lights up again. I can do this again and again after only a 1 second charge on the caps from the single AA battery. I find this interesting.
