Automatic solar charged Daftman LED Light
This the Daftman LED / charger light with an automatic solar charging circuit added. The addition is taken off a circuit posted at Talkingelectronics.com. The circuit posted there was for a ‘solar garden light’. I took just the solar charging part and added it to the Daftman circuit. This allows the circuit to turn itself off when the solar cell is charging in sunlight and then automatically turns on the LEDs when it gets dark. This now makes the device just like a regular ‘solar garden light’ only while it is running the LEDs at night , it is also recovering some of the energy into a second battery. This automatic solar charger part should also work on a Joule Thief circuit.
