International postage paid to Pitney Bowes Inc. If C is greater than 1, the transistor isis with both input and output terminals of the transistor open circuited. This amount is subject to change until you make payment. With no external feedback. Therefore a darlington versus a single output transistor will have different current limiting resistor.

We can build a whole switching supply to power the LEDs, although a single transistor is enough for a mere flashlight. A blocking oscillator is an excellent choice, having been given the nickname "joule thief", because it can power 3V blue or white LEDs from a nearly-dead cell that might be giving only 0.
I made a dinky flashlight with them. And yes, the LEDs do actually blink at 5MHz -- the yellow phosphor might not, but the blue chip itself does.
At least, I suspect they do It has much lower inductance, much higher current and much higher efficiency than the awful things I see elsewhere on the internet -- for some reason, a single 1k series base resistor is quite popular. That thing must take a microsecond to turn off! This thing turns off in less than 50 nanoseconds. At 5MHz, efficiency is probably a little lower than it could be at, say, 1MHz, but this works well enough. About a year later that being now, , I came into posession of some superbright red LEDs, from a very generous donor.
This is getting beefy pretty quickly! I also need a transistor that can sink that kind of current, and it needs to do it at less than 0. I figure given the scope of this project potentially 5A peak collector current , the expense is justified. I soldered the LEDs to copper strips 0. The inductor is wound quadrafilar on a little ferrite rod and comes to about 0. Despite the stiff inductance, this circuit operates at kHz. Thanks to transformer action, the transistor is ganked off in about 50ns, which should give excellent efficiency.
Incidentally, this is my very first use of surface mount components, including the multilayer ceramic chip capacitor, which is in the second picture just below the red power wire, a little square of tan material. This is an alternate way to power the LEDs. I figure their series resistance will cost some power due to the peaky nature of the current waveform, so by rectifying and filtering the output I can get clean DC to the LEDs instead.
This assumes an ideal rectifier of course; fortunately, they exist, very nearly anyway. The MBRS specified has a voltage drop of 0. In the photograph, I actually used an M2FH3, which has similar specs. This was powered by a single AA cell, drooping to a palty 0. Even at this level, the output is enough to see your way in the dark and put ten simultaneous spots in your eyes if you dare look into it.
Powered by a fresh D cell, this thing will light up a whole wall quite nicely. These LEDs have a very uniform output and relatively wide angle, which is very nice to have in a flashlight.
