Many times we forget to unplug the Battery Charger from the AC Power socket after detaching the Phone from the Charger, Power socket will be in ON position and we think that the current is being wasted as the Power socket is ON and as we have not connected any Mobile to it, current is being wasted.

But this is not exactly what it is happening, Lee me first give you a brief introduction to what LOAD means in an Electronic Circuits.

READY TO DESIGN A HOME MADE PCB?

PCB is not a new thing for any electronic student. A printed circuit board (PCB) is used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components using conductive pathways, tracks or signal traces etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate. If you open a TV remote, we can find a simple PCB on which certain components like small capacitors and micro processors. We can typically call it a board which can be used to support different electronic devices to design a required component.

This is how it looks like if we open a remote and the green thing which is used as a holder to support all the equipment is the PCB which we are talking about.

SENZO NIGHTLIGHT

Remember the last time you got up in the middle of the night for a glass of water and stumbled over in the dark? We have all at some time got up and walked in the dark; whatever the purpose may be.

We use our sense of touch and stay closely to the wall as we try to find our way. In this entire route that we cover by feeling the wall, we may trip over something that was left lying on the floor and eventually hurt ourselves. The worst part is that we are still in the dark. Sounds quite pathetic but all of us have gone through such a situation.

With the coming of the Senzo Nightlight, such incidents will be a thing of the past.  What is Senzo? In the simplest of terms it is a nightlight. Delving a little deeper reveals that it is not just any nightlight. The designers have kept the ‘wall feeling’ habit of every individual in mind. This has led to the development of the touch sensitive light, named Senzo.It is  Soledal Clavell and Macros Media who created this wonderful nightlight that lights up the room when touching it.It can be mounted anywhere like bedrooms and corridors.. No need to find light just switch it.
