Hi,
I need some help in building the above circuit. The major problem is I couldn't find a white LED which is at least 40 cd and 60°C in angle. Therefore I need to use array of LEDs. How do I connect the array of LEDs with a switch which can control the light intensity?? I will be good if someone could show me the schematic. Pls help.

The best schematic for a LED flashlight that I've seen so far was published by
www.elektor-electronics.co.uk
in the november 2002 edition.Sadly I am not allowed to upload the article due to copyright restrictions. You could try asking them for a copy though.

What I can say though,

Some of best LEDS you can buy are made by a company called Nichia (japan) ref NSPW 500BS [6400mCd!]

Maxim make a couple of ic's for driving leds

You may also want to take a look at battery chargers for Lithium-ion cells as they are very suitable for this application.
