zero volts wall adapter – now wireless !
A developments video of the Pigeon Loft powering method. Pigeon Loft 2 – this type of powering is envisaged to be furthered into a wireless energy, zero conventional input power, roosting home of small device powering. Energy will be emitted from the circuit, but be based at a home point and be able to fly out from that base to power low power devices. Well, that’s my plan for feathering out this project 🙂 Lidmotor’s ‘Penny’ circuit forms the basis for the system now (thanks again Lidmotor if you read this). An efficient blocking oscillator, the circuit diagram can be found on his YouTuibe channel. The normally fitted LED is replaced, by a connection straight to an output pin on the circuit. That then goes to an AM radio loopstick and then to an L3 (version of Dr. Stifflers coil, made out of a solder tube, with 175 windings). The circuit also has a 0.1uF electrolytic capacitor, instead of the regular 100uF. The 2x axial inductors are 220uH each. Transistor is a C1815.
