Joule thief
« on: July 17, 2022, 09:05:54 am »
I did a video around 5 years ago explaining the workings of a joule thief. Since then i have had positive comments, however one person has really knocked my video and said my explanation is wrong allround.

I would hate to think that my video is spreading misinformation. If it is wrong i will take the video down. Any chance any of you that fully understand the joule thief could take a look at my video. (not going to take it down just from one person's comments). 

Thanks

What you should do it reach out to Colin Mitchell as the commenter https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talking_Electronics

And have a scroll down to Joule Thief here http://www.talkingelectronics.com/te_interactive_index.html

I wouldn't take down the video as content is great but consider adding to the description with a link or two including even Big Clives take on them.  :)

Wow didn't know the founder of talking electronics was the commenter of my video!! i will be sure to link to his page. Didn't give it a thought as he only has 3 subscribers, and one video.
