2014-10-10 (F) Adjustable tDCS

A red indicator LED was specced from the distributor's site. An online calculator predicted an 830 Ohm resistor was necessary for the LED at 9V. The items in the shopping car were each used to create a list with link to each product. The list was made in a spreadsheet program and pasted to the blog. See below.

Electrode pads 1 eBay electrode search

The schematics were updated to include the LED and resistor. These components do no draw from the adjustable current portion of the circuit.

Updated schematic 

To do:
  • Install current regulator
  • Test + Verify safety
