This inverter 12VDC to 240VDC project can be used to power electric razors, stroboscopes and flash tubes, and small fluorescent lamps from a 12 volt car battery. In contrast to the usual feedback oscillator type of inverter, the oscillator of this inverter is separate from the output stage, which allows easy adjustment of the oscillator frequency to suit different applications.
The current rating of the transformer depends upon the load. For electric razors and small fluorescent tubes up to 8 W, 500 mA secondaries will be adequate. Higher output powers may be obtained by choosing a suitable transformer, replacing Tl and T2 by higher power types and reducing the value of R3 and R4 (minimum 120 ohm)
