You know, this seems like ridiculous amount of circuitry is required to light a CFL.

Hey, check our Joule Thief topic on here.  We have folks lighting cfls (and many other things) with an AA battery using this very simple circuit.  Check my video on youtube where I light 400 leds using this circuit.

If you can pry round the join with a driver as Bill says, then that'll be the easiest way.

Yeah, everyone's doing it.  No problem.

@jadaro2600: You had a question. I just proposed an answer.
------------------------------------------------
Actually, to paraphrase some Pirate, we obviously have folks here who are doing magic (= OU?)
with no so complicated circuits and mere AA batteries!

May I propose Pirate88179 for the most crazy experimenter of the year with his
"Joule Thief Lights 400 Leds On Single AA Battery"

Are you serious?  Did you do some maths? Come on! It is impossible. ;D
Are you aware that it could disturb some skeptics?  :P

Thank you, I was simply commenting on the amount of circuitry already present in a CFL.

Is his light powered by a single AA battery? :P
