0 1.5V LED Flasher using Transistor

Another LED flasher, but this time powered only by 1.5V (take note that the minimum voltage to light up LED is 1.8V or higher). Q1 and Q2 will start to generate pulses that charge the C2. When C2 is charged, the voltage across the LED is around 1.5V plus the charge in the capacitor. This voltage is enough to light up the LED.
