How to make blinking / flashing LED circuit - easy DIY for beginners

This project is easy and simple for enthusiastic beginners in electronic

1 x 5 volt
1 x 1000uF electrolyte capacitor
1 x 270 Ohm resistor
1 x LED .

You can play around with different capacitance rating of the capacitor to see the effect on the flashing LED as you can see on the video the larger the capacitance the slower the flash otherwise it flash faster. You can also play around with different rating of resistors or add more LEDs. Use a breadboard / prototype board to build this so that to allow flexibility to play around with the components effect on the circuit.

Some testing ideas that can test on the circuit - use a breadboard for easier manipulation of the components.

1. Add more LEDs
2. Arrange LEDs in Parallel or Series
3. Try different capacitance of the capacitor
4. Try different resistance of the resistor





The final output on permanent soldered circuit board
