This is a easy LED flashlight that is made out of a USB LED light and is flexible so you can put it in spaces that regular flashlights don't fit you can even bend the bottom half so that it can stand up and you will not have to hold it. Now lets stop yappin' and start building!

Step 1: Stuff you need

To make this instructable you will need:

Some duct tape.


Two 3-volt button cell battery.

A USB LED light with a switch (I got mine at dollar tree for $1!!).
i wud hav thought you wud hav gotenn it at dolar tree fo mor than $
okay were is the on and off switch dont see it
its really riny and hard to see but its at the top on the side of that plastic casing.
Does it just stay on all the time? Have you worked out a switch or something to turn it off when not in use?
on the little plastic case at the top there is a switch on the side of it but its sorta tiny.
I picked up two of those from a Dollar Tree, the do work pretty well except for two things...the LED casing cracks easily, and the flexible arm doesn't retain shape well. I greatly improved these things by inserting a strip of foil into the inner casing, and pushing it in to take it's form. I think I may have used a drop or two of superglue, but that may not be necessary.
yeah, after making this the case broke off and I just covered it with duct tape except the switch and LED. And you could probly wrap the arm with wire and that would fix that, or you could just get a different light.
I saw those at the dollar tree. Must be pretty bright, I'll have to get some.
