Picture of Altoids Flash Light
This is a simple and easy to build flash light for beginners.

Step 1: Materials List

The parts you need are:

1 Altoids tin
1 Ultra-Bright LED
1 Foot of wire
1 Roll of electrical tape
1 Switch
2 AA batteries
1 AA battery holder that holds two

You can use either alligator clips or a soldering iron to connect every thing

Most of the parts can be bought at Radio Shack or they can be salvaged.

Very Nice. I think I will make one now :)
