3v low battery voltage flasher

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

The hobby circuit below can be connected to a 3v battery, to give you some warning when the battery is nearing its end of life. It will flash a LED when the battery voltage drops to about 2. 4 volts. The electronic circuit draws only 1ua of current in standby mode and jumps to only 20ua when flashing, so it can safely be included without depleting the battery energy. A voltage

detector IC from Panasonic (Microchip also makes similar devices) is used to monitor the battery voltage. The device`s open drain output swings low, when the battery voltage is below 2. 4 to 2. 5 volts. This action turns on the two transistor oscillator circuit, which drives the LED with short current pulses lasting only 2ms.
