Mood Light

A fantastic colour night light that can phase and flash.

  • Suitable for KS2-4, ideal for KS3, 8 week project.
  • Two high power multi-colour LEDs.
  • Can freeze/cycle through the RGB colours.
  • Fast strobing colour mode.
  • Power on/off switch included.
  • Bulk discount options available.

This circuit provides a great deal of light from just 2 hi-brightness LEDs. With a combination of red, green and blue light, the circuit cycles through every colour and inbetween in about 10 seconds:

RED > YELLOW > GREEN > CYAN > BLUE > MAUVE > RED ...

There is a PTM "Function" button that if pushed momentarily, freezes on the current colour. If held for more than a second, it will cause the LEDs to flash through different colours rapidly in a strobe effect.

Power supply requires 4.5v (3x AA batteries, not included).

The kit contains PCB, all components including battery holder, switches and connecting wire.

Kits sold as single, x10 pack and x50 pack.
