My Joule Thief K-Circuit Version MK2

My K-Circuit (Kodak Disposable Flash Camera Circuit) "Joule Thief" powering a gutted compact florescent light bulb with very low dc input voltages.

Just playing around with this and added a solar panel to charge the 1.5v AA Battery (battery removed during this video) and also added magnet contacts so you can connect different devices. I started adding a usb port into the mix but will have to up the power to make it all work as a charger.. perhaps a slightly larger or more solar panels and up the battery count.. but just a thought at this point.
