The idea that people living in developing regions of the world without safe or clean or reliable electricity or light can provide illumination for their families using nothing more than discarded small batteries (and solar rechargeable batteries) is what prompted Solar CITIES to explore the lighting of high voltage bulbs from low voltage sources. The CVS disposable camera can do this; it uses a fujifilm circuit board for its flash, and modding this "fuji circuit" to run a compact fluorescent light bulb is becoming well known. Still, there are few clear "how-to" materials so that somebody can easily follow to start from scratch and successfully do the modification. My hat is off to the other youtube folks who are trying to fill this gap; this is my effort to help spread the good news. I hope others will share in this inititiave so that nobody else has to suffer in the dark or from the dangers of trying to banish the dark with candles, kerosene, nuclear or coal or oil generated electricity or other dangerous dirty fuels.
