2-Switch Flashlight

If nobody has seen yet, my Easy LED Flashlight. I was wondering how I would make a double switch and double light on the flashlight. Do I have to add hookup wire to the one switch and connect it to the other switch and then have more hookup wire going to my other LED? -Thanks in advance -Brennn10

just use a switch that has 3 prongs and use the middle one as a comon negitive
. "3 prongs" switches are commonly called SPDT (Single Pole-Double throw). Should work great if you want an 'either/or, but not both' setup. Get a switch with center off and it can be the power switch, also.
thanks for clearing that up thats what i meant to say
