Introduction: Altoids Tin Flashlight
Here is a simple way to make your veryown altoids tin flashlight. It works very well. It is also very bright. It is an inexpensive way to make one. I mad this one for around $10.
- 1 altoids tin
- 2 led's (I used Jumbo ones.)
- 1 batterypack (I used two AAA)
- 1 switch (you can use a button but I used a lever switch.)
First you are going to drill holes. Messure the outside of the LED and the switch. Now find a drill that fits the measurement for each one. Now drill the holes were ever you want them and see if the LED's and the switch fits. To keep the LED from falling out I hot glued around it. You could also put some surgu.
Now its time to soder everything in. I dont know how to soder any other type of switch so i cant tell you that but im sure its simple. Now yo solder the LED's. For this I put the two negative wires and twisted them to each other. Then I soldered the positive on the switchthen I soldered the other positive LED wire to the positive connected to the swithch.
Now you have to soder the battery pack in. I soldered the negative wire to the two twisted wire. And the positive wire goes on the other prong on the
Now you are done. You can attach you battery pack some how. Please SUSCRIBE and RATE this instructable. You can also vote for me if it says at the top of the page. Show your pictures of your own flashlight in the comment section.
