Introduction: EASIEST LED EVER

Picture of EASIEST LED EVER

This is a very easy to make pocket sized LED that can be made from items you might have laying around your house; if u don't,they are very cheap.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

This is all the material that your going to need.

-Small LED light
-Small button-cell battery
-Duck Tape

Step 2: Peel

Peel the sticker off the front.

Step 3: Pop It Apart

If you put your finger in the hole and wedge it up in it on the pack it will pop apart

Step 4: Tape It

Put a piece of tape on the inside of the bottom part of the Listerine pack.

Step 5: Wireing

Touch each wire to each side of the battery to see which side it needs to go on. When you figure it out tape the wire on the flat side of the battery down.

Step 6: Putting It Together

Do you use this as a flashlight?

coolrobot (author)Phil B2009-07-24

why did you put tape in the bottom? Plastic doesn't conduct electricity...

It might have been as a non-slip layer to stop the contents shuffling around inside the box.

The pictures are really helpful but perhaps mentioning how to determine which leg is the anode and which is the cathode would be helpful. The longer leg on the LED is the anode (+'ve) the shorter is the cathode (-'ve) this side of the LED usually has a flat edge as well. If you want your LED to last any length of time you really ought to consider a current limiting resistor. I guess in this case, the battery is of such low voltage and internal resistance is adequate. The title is a little misleading too, you haven't made an LED, you've used one. Sorry to nitpick
