Picture of 5 Minute Build #1 - LED Flashlight
There I was, with a 3 volt camera battery in one hand and a white LED in the other. It was pretty obvious what I planned on doing. I gathered some additional materials and went to work. Within a couple minutes, I had a working flashlight and in a few more it was finished!

Here's what you'll need to make this little flashlight...

- High Brightness LED in whatever color you want; I used a white, 7000mcd LED from RadioShack that came in a pack of 2 for $1.99
- 3V camera battery
- Tape (Scotch, Masking, Duct, Electrical, it doesn't really matter)
-Card stock paper
- "HELLO, My Name Is..." name tag sticker

- Scissors and/or X-acto knife
-Needle nosed pliers (optional)

The first step to the assembly is making two card stock additions for the battery. These are made with 2 layers of the card stock paper. The paper I used for this was the paper found at the top of component bags at RadioShack. NOTE: If you can avoid buying stuff from RadioShack, don't go! I go "often" because I live a few blocks away. I wish Jameco would take its place!

it is good but it would be much cooler if it had a simple switch

It's good, but it would be better with a micro switch added.
