0 Simple LED Lamp (Current Regulated)

This simple lamp circuit is made of very few materials. It uses high intensity white LEDs. The circuit is current regulated thus the LED is protected even the supply voltage is variable. The operation of the circuit is very similar to LED driver using LM317 regulator. The current is controlled by resistor R1 with the formula: Current = 1.2V/R1
