Sony HiFi Combo Remote Control - Using One Battery

This shows the battery compartment with only one battery installed. The other battery contact ( a negative terminal is corroded and is discarded ).
The Joule Thief is designed to work with only one 1.5 volt dry cell. The dry cell can be almost fully discharged and yet the LED will still light.
In fact it is solely designed to operate more efficiently with half dead dry cell.
However a word of caution here. Use only dry cells that do not leaked when they are discharged, otherwise you will have corrosive battery fluid damaging your beautiful creation.
