The 1.5 Volt Project

Welcome to my longest running and most obsessive build: The 1.5 Volt Project.

The 15VP project started in 2012 as an attempt to build a 1.5-volt AA-powered flashlight from scratch. With no formal education in any of the required fields, I’ve spent 5 years of my evenings and weekends learning a little bit of everything: electronics, mechanical engineering, drafting, machining and small business administration. It’s been a wild journey that continues to this very day, so follow along by clicking on any of the pictures below!
