    Hello,

    As seen in the title, I need some projects to do now.

    Would somebody give me some good projects that are safe to build?

    I would greatly appreciate that......

    how about a Joule thief? ;)

    This will help greatly with you and your friends. It allows "dead" batteries to light white leds.

    The build will also teach you about inductors, and winding your OWN inductors. Transistors, point to point wiring.. Just a good project to get the brain working:

    Here is a member that used one for lighting his pet mouses' cage:

    I am alone. I want to do it alone.;)I don't have much friends...;)

    Um, I don't like the joule thief. :D

    i want to build converter. 12VDC/12AH battery to 24V/24AH if possible. :D

    I need things. :D Pls say if it is possible~

    That's pretty big for a beginner. I doubt that you can do it

    You will need the skills learned from the joule thief before even THINKING about building a DC to DC converter.

    And, it is not possible to go from 12vcd/12ah to 24vdc/24ah..

    It doesn't work like that. If you double the voltage, you will lose at least HALF the AH.

    So the 12v 12AH would be less than 24v 6AH

    Okay.:(:D

    :D:DMeans, if I will decrease the voltage in about 50%, the AH will increase in about 50%.

    So like that, 12VDC/12AH->6VDC/18AH

    Heya, please convert 2000μ AMP to amps (like 1 amp, 0.1, 0.01 amp)

    THANKS!~

    You have a lot of learning to do my friend.

    A μA or MICRO-AMP is 1 millionth of an amp.

    .000001A is 1μA

    SO, 2000μ = .002A

    Google will do alot of this for you.

    If you type "2000microamp to amp" in google, it will respond :
    2000 microamperes = 0.002 amperes

    Look into google calculator for ALL KINDS OF conversions and math functions.

    I don't want to waste time. :) I want to learn electronics at a very young age as much as possible. Hopes that I knew somebody that knows electronics so I could ask things. :( Yea, all of you do like that.

    :) I want a school that accepts young for electronics learning...

    That is why I told you about the google calculator. It will help save you time.


    Have you read the All About Circuits eBook yet?

    It only takes an hour to read, and you will learn TONS!

    Things will start to make sense to you.

    Read it.

    You are hurting yourself by not doing so. You will waste more time thinking about and asking about things that you would already know if you read the eBook.

    If you read it today, you will be YEARS ahead of what other can do tomorrow.

    Do it.

    Don't worry, you've got plenty of time ahead of you. No need to cut corners--It will only hurt you in the future. The best thing I can suggest is to do a lot of studying before really building any major projects. If you want to learn electronics, you need to learn the basics first. Once you understand how electricity works, you can move on to more interesting projects. :)

    I would suggest a simple crystal set radio receiver, then perhaps a one transistor code practice oscillator. If you're ambitious, then a simple regenerative receiver. These can all be done without any dangerous voltages lurking in wait for young fingers.

    Maybe you could google for simple kits that will be useful tools for you to use.

    Things like; simple transistor tester, adjustable power supply, capacitance meter, 555 signal generator etc. These will be of great help when you later want to build more difficult projects. :)
