    I was taking a fast look at this guide just to get some idea of how to get this done, but the ebay-links didnt work, the one supposed to show the resistors and the 13.8v amp power supply, on the first page. Could you please update this?

    Sorry the ebay links don't work anymore but that is because they are no longer for sale on ebay by those sellers. If you read the pdf though it has the info you need and then when you are ready you can google on ebay and find sources that are current.

    Good luck!

    A big thanks to Melissa W, IowaDavid and TP for compiling this guide.

    I built a 650 diode unit based on these instructions about 6 months ago and have seen a great improvement in my condition. I can't compare it to a manufactured RLT unit because I have never owned one but the coverage and joule strength of a device modeled on these instructions is really top notch. It's a great investment considering that it should provide many years of use.

    Default My Red Light Therapy device.

    Hello again!

    About four months since this site gave me the first idea of building my own device, it is finally standing on my desk and working extremely well. I got this project finished, and I'm so glad about that right now, even though my friend (a professional solder) helped me a lot with that part of the job. But choice of material and maths and stuff behind made me learn a lot about both theoretical and practical electronics. I will start using this array in a couple of days - yeah, with RLT I'm prepared for 2010 to come - after I've fixed some protective goggles and some kind of adequate "shelf" or "ledge" (or what you would call it) to place the array upon, to get my face in an optimal position, as my simple "supports" (based on grooves in a particle board) are not able to lean. Well, as you can see this is very much based on IowaDavids guide, even though I had to ask about almost everything on a swedish electronics forum to get the picture.

    So, if any swedes need guidance I have a lot of information and would be pleased to help you get started in building your own device.

    I will try this for half a year and maybe build an array with blue light or IR later on. We'll see.

    Thanks to everyone that is making a contribution to this forum!

    And finally - my array: http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/149/dsc02083e.jpg

    There are 936 Red LED's (the R1330 from SuperBrightLeds.com) on 4 PC Boards called "Europe boards" (some standard definition ****) on 100x160 mm each. Not high enough to cover a whole face, but as I don't need any treatment on my forehead, this array feels more than enough.

    And of course I'll let you hear about the results...

    Cheers!

    Thumbs up

    Great job!
    I hope you have wonderful results from using the light.
    Remember go slowly and build up your time gradually.

    Best of luck!

    Are there problems with the instruction page or link? I could not get through to view the instructions. Does anyone know if the page is still available? Thank you

    Hey there,
    Sorry about that. I guess it was taken down by the OP.
    If anyone saved a copy please post it.

    Thanks.

    I did not save a copy, but maybe someone can put this cache version from google docs into a new PDF. Here it is:
