Powerful LED flasher

Description.

This is the circuit diagram a powerful LED flasher. High power LEDs are very common in the market now and a 1W high power LED is used here. Transistors Q1 and Q2 are wired as an oscillator which produces positive pulses of width 20ms @ ½ Hz. Transistor Q3 and MOSFET Q4 inverts this pulse and MOSFET Q5 drives the LED D1.
