Car Front LED Delay
« on: February 04, 2011, 13:56:36 PM »
Hi!
I have 2 pcs of http://www.stylingbutiken.se/flextube-vit-24cm-/2309-0

I now want the following action from the led delay.

When I turn off the car, I want the leds to be on for a couple of more secounds say for example 10 secounds. I Dont need any resitors because the leds are 12 V already and they can function with my battery.

What do I have to buy and how will I construct my LED delay?

Thank you very much.

I have bought transistors 2n222 and a lot of capicators

Hi mattias89. You need an LED off delay circuit. Google for one, or use mine:

LED Off Delay with dimming effect

Because your LEDs are ready for 12V, you will connect them in parallel (as many as you like) and then directly to the emitter of the 2n2222 (i use the same transistor). Hope this circuit is ok for you.

Oh, and something else: How much current each one draws? Is important for the 2n2222 transistor. Do not exceed the total power dissipation and mac current
