1.3 Volt Power Source


Posted on Jun 19, 2012

This is a replacement power source for 1.3V mercury cells or other small batteries. It has many uses and I use this circuit in my computer to power a front panel multi adapter which has a digital thermometer. This circuit takes it power from a PC. The power connectors have colour coded wiring, red and black are a 12V supply, black and yellow are a 5V supply. These are extremely high current so absolute care must be taken to avoid short circuits and an inline fuse of 100mA is recommended.

The 1.3V is derived from a Red LED. When on and forward biased the LED`s voltage drop between anode and cathode is about 1.9V, this is too high for mercury cell powered equipment, but fed in series with a 1N4148 signal diode drops around 0.6V, the su
