Making a lamp into a touch switch lamp.

  • Nice view from the loft man !

  • Holy crap those sensors are $10/ea in that link, so now that $2 lamp has $40 of parts in it :) Kudos for not giving up though, lol

  • Wouldn;t normally the on off switch of any lamp always be on th HOT side? ... I mean you never put a house wireing switch on the neutral side ... right??

    • Normally, switched liked it that way though.

  • After spending $100.00 on supplies the lamp works, $35 at Walmart.

  • Andrew is a man who gets electrocuted and then removes the safety function from a battery charger in the same video. Definitely my favourite UZworld channel right now

  • They have a very nice touch lamp on amazon for $30.

    • Clapper probably not a good idea in bedroom...when you get busy with your lady the neighbors will think its lightning in your house 😁

  • You could put liquid tap or conformal coating on the circuit board.

  • Hi for the lamp there is copper conductive varnish made by Tifoo it is on amazon too. It makes surface conductive usualy for electroplating but I ting it would work nice with your lamp too.

  • I just bought one of those chargers because I didnt feel like buying one of those 300 dollar computer ones that dont let you do anything and I did the same hack as you and it's great! Planning on putting a touch sensor on my lamp also! Thanks Andrew!

  • would be much cheaper and easier to get a new lamp with metal body, than to burn so many switches

  • Great video I ordered the same ones and found out that the light cannot be grounded otherwise it will stay on

    Cheryl BarronCheryl Barron9 kun oldin
  • I bet the reason why the charge didn't give good spark was because the clamps are plated where as the only clamps are pure

    • @Andrew Camarata I just want you alive bro 😂😂 I always forget the differences though, I'm in the UK and almost all circuits need RCD protection which limits earth leakage to 40 milliseconds or less, there are a few commercial exceptions though.

    • It kept a wire from melting. If you are worried about safety install a GFCI breaker. That would have tripped when I got that shock.

    • This lamp is on right now. Its very nice with its new touch sensor.

  • Thanks dude! I was able to do it first try, thanks to your vid. Cheers! I hated my bed lamp before

    • That's good to hear. I am still loving my touch lamp.

      Andrew CamarataAndrew Camarata11 kun oldin
    • I had a blue wire on mine. Used it to hot.

  • Hi Andrew, good to see Levi is fine. You sure were diligent about getting that lamp to work with the touch switch. Interesting to see the Habor Freight charger and DMM same as I have been using for years. Always wondered what you would think about their quality. Awhile back I got a second HB charger and it didn't want to work? Then I bought their larger roll around model and that demonstrated the same 'non-working' effect. Give me an old style charger any time. I will watch the video again to see if I can figure out where you put the solder bridge at. Also seems my old deep cycle battery keeps charged for a long time and will work when nothing else will. Seriously, Go figure! My shop is filled with HB tools but I have found if I let the get rained on they rust quickly. Terry

  • That structure will be expensive as hell to heat in the winter being made of steel. That is if it's meant to be occupied in the winter. I don't know how good that is.

  • I do believe he wired it up so that lamp switches the neutral on and off which is wrong. The hot lead from the plug needs to be switched.

    sailingsolarsailingsolar13 kun oldin
    • That's How I had it the first time and it exploded. Technology connections made his the same way with the neutral being switched.

  • With my NO electric and electronic knowledge that lamp was going into trash 🗑🤣🤷‍♂️ But Andrew master of everything 🕺 never gives up 😎 most repairing videos I think 🤔 he will give up but NO 💪 he surprises me with ordering new expensive parts and get $#1T done ✅👍✌🏻

  • those new led bulbs are not designed to work w touch sensors- they need a fixed current. must use traditional filament bulbs. i had the same exact problem. lol

  • First three burned up, so he buys 9 more. "They're cheap" he said. At $40 each that is not cheap. Glad you're doing so well you can burn $400 and not worry about it. Thanks for sharing a typical AC blitz job.

    • Probably been price gouged due to recent uptake in sales, I'm sure they retail for 5-10 dollars on average.

  • I think it has to do with the light bulb you used on the second time. Some of those high efficiency bulbs don't work so well.

  • I don't think the live wire should go to the socket. That way you will have power there, even when the lamp is turned off.

  • Those boards might've blown because you shorted the board. They have that plastic casing for a reason. One of those connections might have touched the nut inside.

  • Andrew - if you have not tried Solderlene paste flux, you really should. Solder joints flow much quicker than flux core solders and it doesn't end up as a hard or burnt residue making it easy to clean. And although it's not recommended for 'proper' soldering technique, you can transfer solder from the iron tip right to the fluxed joint and it'll flow right in, quick and easy - good enough for home and automotive repairs.

  • Wow 😱 you got a lot of courage ! I hate wen I get zapped ! From all the clients you have been can't you find a bigger lamp ? Or make one yourself it aviouse to small and removing the casing of the circuit board fry the components wen power on ! I use a Christmas 🎄 lights as night lamp so I don't look for the button wen I wake up at my bed 🛌 lamp....
