I am going to wind a toroid inductor for this circuit,
but would a high permeability core of this type have any downsides?
And is 34 AWG wire fine for this?
Info on core:
Core type MPP
OD 39.90 mm
ID 24.1 mm
HT 14.5 mm
AL value: 740 +/- 8% (nH)
MPP Permeability: 550 (μ)
Wire gauge: 34 AWG...
I have seen numerous Youtube videos on super high voltage Joule Thief projects. They are using small one inch ferrite toroids and from single 1.5 volt AA battery power a 3-5 watt 110-220 volt cree LED brightly consuming merely 200 mA of current from the battery! The following link will...
