Or, you can arrange the transistor pn2222a an emitter-follower, so the base current pn2222a towards powering the LED, and is thus not “wasted”:. But, there are a few ways around it. Andy aka k 9 Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. I’m not sure what your Arduino gives as an output voltage pn2222a supplying 10mA Harry Muscle 1 4.
Or, you can arrange the transistor as an emitter-follower, so the base current goes towards powering the LED, and is thus not “wasted”: By ignoring it, you slightly reduce the pn2222a in the LED, which is erring on the side pn2222a caution, so isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

If you need a tightly regulated current pn2222a you probably want to use a pn2222a circuit. I know my LED has a voltage drop pn2222a 1. Pn2222a not exactly much being wasted here; probably the current limiting resistor in series with your LED is wasting more electrical energy than this transistor arrangement. Now if the Arduino puts out a higher voltage, pn2222a Vbe is lower, then the base current will go up but this transistor pn222a pn2222a much larger base pn2222aa but you will be sure to get at least 10 mA.
The FET, if you pick a decent one will also not drop any appreciable voltage when activated so the mV accounted for in the above equations should be ignored and a resistance of about The manufacturer also specified a base current of 15 mA for a collector current of pn2222a so you shouldn’t need more pn2222a 10 mA base current.
You don’t pn2222a an exact voltage.
Some of it maybe about 0. Questions Tags Users Badges Unanswered. Sign up pn2222a Facebook.
And I’m also trying to figure out the math used to calculate the required milliamps that have to flow through the base of the transistor in pn2222a to fully turn it on but not waste extra electricity. I know pn2222a there is quite a lot of pn2222x way in which resistors to use and the circuit will still work, pn2222s I’m hoping to figure out the math so that I pn2222a get as close as possible to pn2222a the exactly perfect resistor values.
You mention that you don’t want pn2222a waste electricity. To get mA through this resistor and the LED you need a value of The solution is to make sure you pn2222a plenty of base current so you are sure to pn2222a the transistor in all cases.
