PumLantern Kit

PumLantern Kit

This kit includes everything needed to build a solar-charged, nighttime-activated, light-pulsing lamp. It charges all day from the SCC3733 solar cell, and “pumms” the four ultra-mega-super-bright LEDs to cast artistic silhouettes against the walls of the stylized cardboard lantern.

The LEDs are a random grab of white, blue, red, orange, and green. Basic soldering is needed to assemble the Pummer circuit, while the laser-cut lantern slides and snaps together with little effort.

    I built four of the earlier version of this kit. A nice second or third electrical project. Be sure you don’t leave your lanterns don’t get rained on or hit with the sprinkler while they’re charging; the cardstock is very vulnerable to water.
