Best Joule Thief circuit for Salt Water battery project
« on: November 30, 2013, 02:15:54 PM »
Hello everyone

I have been thinking of making a project that uses a "salt water" battery.

I then though of using a joule thief, with the battery, in order to increase its voltage and extend its life.

Having said this, I could really use some advice on the BEST Joule Thief circuit for this job.

Can anyone suggest a Joule Thief circuit that is best suited for my needs?

Thank you all in advance,

This circuit should work provided your battery will produce at least 0.8 volts >>
