The Color Night Joule Thief is a simple soldering project that lets you build a darkness activated color-changing light. The joule thief circuit only needs 0.6 volts to operate so a "nearly dead" battery will power it for quite a while. (We get it, you're not cheap, you're thrifty - that's why you were hanging on to almost-dead batteries. Well, here ya go - a use for them!) The circuit features adjustable darkness sensitivity and an RGB led that automatically cycles through a rainbow of colors. It's a terrific first soldering project.

 

The picture shows three kits, cycling through all light colors. One joule thief per kit is included - you'll have to buy multiples or steal one from a friend if you want more.

 

The Joule Thief is a kit designed by one of our favorite electronics artists, The LED Artist - a Brooklyn, NY based technology artist. His name is really Akimitsu Sadoi and he engineers and manufactures some very cool stuff.
