DC Lamp Dimmer

A low power, low cost dc lamp dimmer for a two-wire portable "flashlight" can be realized with little or no heatsinking. In addition, a single potentiometer, R3 adjusts lamp brightness. Battery power is stored in C1 for U1, which is a free-running multivibrator whose frequency is determined by R1, R2, R3, R4, and C2. U1 drives the gate of Q1, turning it and the lamp ON and OFF at a rate proportional to the multivibrator duty cycle.
