Brightness Control for small Lamps

Posted on May 21, 2012

Switch-mode driven 1.5V bulbs. This device was designed on request, to control the light intensity of four filament lamps (i.e. a ring illuminator) powered by two AA or AAA batteries, for close-up pictures with a digital camera. Obviously it can be used in other ways, at anyone`s will. Portable unit - 3V battery supply.
