Hi All!! ....Newbie alert.......:eek:

Been prepping for a number of years now and posting for as long...Anyway ,,

I found this site a while back that showed a circuit / or buy the plans etc etc that you could use the 50 volt line on your phone lines as alternate power........:D

Unfortunately I was at the local library and didnt record the site......

Anyone else heard of this as it could come in use for stuff like charging LED lighting and such in blackouts

Any help with either the circuit OR the website gratefully received.

Im in UK and the system would be the sameall over , but as different companies use the telecoms Stateside , would they use different voltages ???

I need to build a couple of these for the power outage scenario. Can't see doing anything larger with the voltage and line size, but a couple electric lights in a blackout are a handy thing, until you get the lanterns up and running.
