You must be retired, you have w-a-y too much time on your hands.
You want feedback on $1 nightlights?
It sounds like a creepy household!

For a nightlight? I think I could work that out myself, but what the
heck. I bet they are some pretty looking drawings!
*** Of course you could. However, my philosophy has been
" don't try to re-invent the wheel ".... When I see something
that works good, for less than I can build it for in my home
workshop, I want to learn about it before starting my own
I found that there's no way I can do it for a buck, and, whoever
made it, did it well..... No reason to get inventive on this..
Been done... works well... sells cheap... available locally....

PS So did you want a ***.sche file for PSPICE, or not ??
Thanks, I would have no use for it other than to see your circuit and
notes. If you spent some time on it and it's real pretty I'd love to
have a look. Please include the word "Usenet" in the subject line, as I
have a filter to only let them through. Thanks!

Oops, I forgot ..
Eureka, Texas , one of the five Eurekae in Texas
Mine in about 80 miles south of Dallas , in Navarro County,
on the banks of Lake Richland-Chambers..... what there is
left of it during this drought.....
What I am interested in is... What's the company name of the dollar
store where you got them?
Is it "Dollar Store" or some other cheap price store like 'Family Dollar
Store', 'Dollar Tree', 'Dollar General', or some other name?
In Corsicana, Texas , it is called "Dollar Tree"... We also have
Family Dollar, where things now cost $1.50 USD and Dollar Store,
where things cost $2.00 USD...
Dollar Tree is my favorite. No prices are marked. Everything
is a dollar unless it is on sale, and marked down..... I wish they
sold beer..... :>(((((

Eureka, where the telephone lines have more clicks and chirps
than a Ubangi wedding ceremony...
Put a big fast-rise power glitch into your simulation to see why
all LED's don't just use series caps for limiting.
A few years ago, the $-store had nightlights with R-G-B leds
that summed to white...sorta...
They are good, but, you may want to consider buying a $10 emergency
night light. There are some LED night lights that are also a
rechargeable flashlight. If the power goes out, the bright light goes
on to light the way and is then able to be used as a carry around
flashlight. I have one on each floor and they are very handy when the
power goes out at night.
I'd be interested in a few of these lights, but which dollar store?
There are many of them....
In my area we have Dollar General - Dollar Tree - Family Dollar and
there's at least two more in a nearby larger city.
Please name the store!
