Q:
I ordered 20 class sets of these for my school, but the miniature LDR is not there - instead it is a different component that looks like a small LED. I understand though the LDR is discontinued - What is this replacement product, and will this work the exact same way?
Asked by: Paul
A:
Hi Paul, Thank you for your question, the replacement part is called a phototransistor. It works in a similar but subtly different way in this circuit. The old LDR would alter it's resistance based on the light level reaching it. This increased flow of power would then trigger the transistors to switch on the LED. The new phototransistor is a transistor that is triggered by light instead of electrical current and then switches the other transistors in the circuit to turn on the LED. Best Regards Cullen

Q:
Can you tell me how I would build this kit exactly the same, however instead of using an LDR I would like a simple push button switch. Thank you
Asked by: James Cook
A:
If I understand correctly you are looking for a circuit where you press a button and an LED turns on for an adjustable length of time. If that is what you are looking for you could use http://www.kitronik.co.uk/products/project-kits/easy-build-kits/led-picture-frame-kit/ . This would power up to 10 high brightness LEDs and you can set the time the lights will be on up to around 30 minutes. Alternatively, if you really want to use the timed night light kit you could replace the LDR with a latching switch and put a 5k resistor in series with the switch. I would recommend the first option though, as it would be more straight forward and less expensive!

Q:
Hi. Can I power the unit with a PP3 battery (9V) and will this extend the time it would last?
Asked by: Gerry Cochrane
A:
I am afraid you cannot run this from a 9V PP3 battery. This voltage would be too high for the colour changing LED which needs a supply of between 2.7Vand 5V. Also the PP3 battery would last for a much shorter time, as the capacity of a PP3 battery is typically less than that of an AA battery.
