Abstract—A system based on Blocking Oscillator (BO) has been built and potentially produces high gain pulses voltage. This paper aims to discuss characteristic, work principle, and its potency of simple blocking oscillator to optimize batteries usage. The measurement of its peak to peak voltage (Vpp) and root means square voltage (Vrms) were conducted using digital oscilloscope and digital voltmeter. The experiment proves that the system produces high gain pulse electricity and driven LED without broke it out. The system could power a white LED 3.0-4.0 V using an input voltage of 0.98 VDC from waste battery. Using blocking oscillator, a battery may be used longer and more efficient until the battery energy almost ramps out to 0.5V.

Index Terms—Blocking oscillator, characteristic, gain, led.
