All about the “Art Attack” LED voltage booster project.

Some time back, I wrote a post about making a very simple voltage booster to drive a green LED from a single dry cell. The idea was to demonstrate in the simplest way possible how a voltage booster works, and then explain it in more detail. One post turned into 4 as I kept adding details.

Here they are all together:

  1. Fun time - A voltage booster so simple a child can build it - Electronics - “Art Attack” style.
  2. How the simple voltage booster works - Time to get abstract.
  3. Revisiting the inductor for the simple voltage booster - “Missed it by that much.” - Maxwell Smart
  4. One last word about the simple voltage booster - Ulterior motives revealed.
