18 LED dimmable LED lamp

Build it or go for a kit, this is a nice design for a Table or Desktop lamp. You will need to fix in a Enclosure with a Diffused Plastic or Glass Filter Front.

18 LED dimmable LED lamp

This circuit is a dimmable white LED lamp array with 18 LEDs. The lamp brightness is regulated as long as the input voltage is above 10.5V. A low-dropout analog voltage regulator is used for a simple and relatively efficient design. The lamp produces enough light to use as a a reading lamp or a small work lamp. – G. Forrest Cook

The 12V DC input voltage is routed through the 1A fuse and the on/off switch. The 1N4001 diode acts as a crowbar device. If reverse polarity is applied, the fuse will blow and the rest of the circuitry will be protected. Power is sent to the LM2941CT voltage regulator IC.

Power this project from sunlight with a CirKits solar power circuit board kit.
