    Hi first off yes I am an ignorant noob. yes you knw more than me.

    If your feeling kind please enligten me.

    im designing a product but before i hire someone i need to have a small understanding of the light electronics.

    So i bought a simple night light and tried to work out, how it works


    I can see a photo resistor on the left and 3 LEDs.

    But what are the other things??

    is it a 1amp resistor and some kind of chip?

    And also is it safe to have the direct connection to the plug outlets?

    I also got a LED lamp, it uses strips of LEDs and has dimmable on off button


    Its nothing like the text books, so im well lost.

    Any post is good post.

    thx guys

    1, Your photos do not show.
    2. One does not need to know any detail of electronic design if one is hiring a designer, a basic idea is usually enough.
    3. No such thing as a 1 amp resistor.
    4. Direct connection to mains is a very broad query. In some instances it is dangerous, in others it is essential.
    5. You have the LED strip, we have nothing so no idea what your query involves.
    6. No idea how you intend to convert say, a bad mood into light output.o_O
    7. Good designers always check their output.
