LED Dimmer

Post by surgeslayer » Thu May 13, 2010 10:05 am


Hello all,
I'm new to electronics and need help with a project.
I have an LED strip about 24" that I power with a 12v A23 battery. I want to be able to adjust brightness with some sort of manualy operated dimmer. Thanks for any help Mike

Hi there,

What is the current draw of the LED strip?

Did you ever use a potentiometer before?
LEDs vs Bulbs, LEDs are winning.

Substitute your LED strip for the motor -> 555 Based PWM Controller
