My electronic Scottoiler died, again! So this time I decided to pull out the electronics to see if it really was just switches failure, in which case maybe the electronics could be re-housed.
Fed up with cheap solar lights needing to be replaced every year and inspired by the wonderful efforts of a fellow inventor George, I decided to design and construct my own led garden lights.
The materials were to be readily available and cheap! With the potential to scale up production if required, to supply friends, neighbours and who knows who!
Rather than solar, which involves batteries and can be complex to extend, I decided that the lights were to be powered from the mains driving a low voltage supply.
