With the level constant power failure and high rate of poverty, do you know that you can start constructing a simple D.C light and start making money from it? Also because of the fake touch lights imported from china that has flooded everywhere now people now prefer making direct current light on their own that would last the test of time.
In this article, I’m going to take you a run down on how you can start this business from the comfort of your home and from my little experience of buying and selling of goods, I’ve come to realized that the product that you made by yourself will fetch you more money than buying and reselling.
A Direct Current light is a light that make use of low voltage. Example of such light is a Touch light which make use of 1.5-3V batteries.
Now let’s begin….
Materials For Construction
5. Battery cage
After getting all these materials you are good to go but before I continue let’s quickly look at the use of the above materials.
1. Bulb:- This is the part that will give light when it is switched on. The brightness of bulb depends on the type of bulb used and battery used.
2. Wire: – This is just any type of wire. Is like an iron and this responsible for transferring of charges from battery to bulb.
3. Batteries: – Batteries are of different capacity e.g. 1.5V, 3V, 9V, 12V etc. Batteries are the one that owns the charges. Is the part that give charge to the bulb, it contain two charge positive (+) and negative (-) charges.
4. Switch:- This is also known as circuit breaker. This is responsible for switching on and off in the construction, it is the remote that control the whole system to work.
5. Battery cage: This is where you will put your battery,
Attention please, this part need a very serious attention for good, correct and perfect connection. Now let start the connection.
Take your bulb and determine the positive and negative wire, you can do this by the use of some battery like microphone battery, after that get the wire connected, and take the positive wire to the switch while the negative to the negative of the battery. After that put your batteries in the cage and connect the wire out from the two end; the negative to the negative wire that is coming from the bulb, finally take the positive wire to the other side of the switch. Now you have make a perfect circuit switch on the bulb and you will see that the bulb will brings light. You can make this several times and sell it to people at your own rate to make your money
Problems And Solutions
The following are the problems you might face after you have construct the circuit and the solution to each problems.
1. Battery getting heat: – In case you see your battery getting heat you should check for any partial contacts between the wire and battery failure to do this may case the wire to become weak or the battery to discharge or damage of battery and bulb.
2. Failure to bring light:- If this happen you can check the batteries may be they are weak if they are weak you replace them or recharge them if they are rechargeable. If same problem occur you can also check the connections if they are not well connected or not. You can also check maybe the bulb is good or bad.
Marketing And Selling Of Your Product
The aspect of marketing your product is a very important aspect when marketing you should search for buyer or you tell people about your product.
You can also market your product by writing of advert in your street, carry your products to the market, you can also sell in less price compared to the industrial made lamp and touch lights.
You can take your product to schools and market to students because of the problem of epileptic power supply in our schools nowadays.
If you can do these I see your product been sold easily without stress.
