ECO ORB AND ECO BATTERY

Picture of ECO ORB AND ECO BATTERY
Hello everyone and thank you for viewing my Instructable , 

What I want to share with you today is a project I'v been working on ,
I'll call it the eco orb and eco battery , ok so I didn't put to much thought into the name but that's not important ,
what is a eco orb you ask ,
basically its a fancy  led lite that runs on clean energy ,
here's an Idea of why I can up with this idea , 

I wanted a light that runs on clean and free energy ,
I wanted to make an easy to use battery that runs on water ,
that's reusable without the hassle and mess that come's with it ,
I wanted to make something that could run an led or two without any help from a joule thief ,
so I needed to make a battery that was completely independent  ,
next I needed to make a light for it that looked nicer then a led on a couple of alligator clips ,
so I'm pleased to show you my easy solution to make your own eco orb and battery .
