120VAC or 240VAC Powered LEDs

120V or 240V Powered LEDs Circuit
You can easily activate the LED from home electrical power line with this circuit diagram. You just need to add a nonpolar capacitor and a 1Kohm / 1W metal oxide resistor to activate the LEDs from home power line with serial connection.

Note:
Change the capacitor value from 0.47uf/250V to become 0.22uF/400V for 240VAC power line input.
Use safety tools, be carefull during installation since it use high electrical voltage.
