Kubikop’s 555 timer pulsed Joule Thief light
This is a replication of Kubikop’s 555 timer pulsed Joule Thief circuit. I paired it with the Slayer’s 2″ toroid flourescent bulb circuit. The reasoning is that the light bulb only needs to be on part of the time (around 60 times a second) for your eyes to see it as steady light. The off time of the circuit is a power savings which means that the lighting circuit should run longer for a given amount of energy.
