Flip Flop JT Lite
This is a CFL light using a ‘flip flop’, a ‘joule thief’, and a ‘Fuji’ disposable camera CFL circuit. I call it the “Flip Flop JT Lite”. The first circuit takes energy from a source and turns it into pulses. The second circuit converts the energy to very fast jolts of energy at an elevated voltage. That energy is then fed to an inverter type fluorescent bulb driver that is run by one AA battery. This was an experiment to see if this method could extend the run time of the light for a given amout of energy. It also shows a different way to pulse the Joule Thief circuit besides using a 555 timer chip.
