Introduction: Compact Mini LED
In this Instructable I will be showing you a simple and compact LED that can be powered by a light press and can fit on your thumb. Enjoy :)
Step 1: Find an LED, Along With Batteries
Get an LED along with 2 batteries. I got this one from an emergency whistle with a small light attached. When taking it apart, remember how the LED was touching the battery terminals.
Step 2: Connect 1 End to Battery and Apply Tape
Tape around 1 battery and 1 end of the LED. Leave 1 end sticking out.
Step 3: Cut a Hole for the Other End of the LED to Touch the Battery
Cut a hole in the tape above the other battery so the end of the LED and battery are able to touch, but not touching.
Step 4: Apply Tape to the Open End
Put a piece of tape over the open terminal. I used a piece of bandaid as it is more grippy and softer. Apply light pressure and your mini LED flashlight should work, yet be small enough to fit in a coin pocket!
Thanks for looking, try it out, enjoy :) Leave feedback!
