LED’s, the thing that fascinates me and inspire to build things out of it. Its cool look and miniature size made these superstars a great thing to play and build with. Here is the thing i have made, a DIY Penta colored star which will add great looks to your living room. This took me about 2 and a half hours to complete, soldering and sticking the components to the platform was a big pain. But in the end star LED light turns out very well
The circuit diagram is pretty straight forward. We have chosen five color LED’s for five different wings of the star. Each set carries 4 LED’s and this forms lighting element in each wing. However I have chosen 9v battery to power this whole thing up for its easier mobility. Red, Yellow and Green LED’s consume around 2.2v so it is possible to power 4 LED’s in series through a 9v battery. However the Blue and white LED’s consume around 2.8v approx which makes it impossible to use 4 LED’s in series. Therefore i have used three LED’s in each set of White and Blue wing. Then i hooked up rest of the two (1 Blue and 1 White) together making a total of 6 LED sets.
R1 to R6 serves as current limiting resistor in the circuit. You can change the power supply to 12v if you feel it will comfortable. This will allow you to power 4 Blue and white LED’s in series together. That’s it with the schematic of Penta colored Star LED light.
And here is the final product of my work. You can see each wings of LED’s connected together using the center piece. And Blue and White LED sets are connected in three and two combination is also visible.
Hope you all like this article and try to build one by yourself. Try this with different colored LED’s and new combinations. You can try this on any unique shapes, it might add extra flavor to it. Thanks for reading,
