Hello again! This is Craft Maker Infinity doing another collaboration with JM1999! :)

In this instructable, JM1999 will be showing you how to make a simple, solderless circuit! (BTW I used to try to make these, but they didn't turn out so good, but JM1999 has figured out how to do it in a much easier way!) ;3

Step 1: How to Make It

What you will need is:

One 9 volt battery, two copper wires (about 3 inches long each), scissors (or a wire stripper), PVC electrical insulation tape (Tradeforce brand is what JM1999 uses here), an LED Light emitting diode (make sure it has the posts, which are the two rod-like wires sticking out), and a 510 ohm resistor (Green-Brown-Brown).

Step 2: And You're Done!

Once again, thank you JM1999 for his part in this instructable, and for coming up with such a great idea! ;)

Stay creative!

<p>Now you got me interested in making a more comlpex solderless circuit just for fun,</p><p>May be run a contest with a prize....</p>
<p>Just a little technical note : </p><p>The resistors you mention are far from ideal for this.</p><p>150R (brown/green/brown) will give you a LED current of around 52mA which is too high for standard LEDs. They tend to be 25mA max. Your LED will overheat and fail early with this.</p><p>The other resistor you mention (red/green/red) is 2.5K (2500 ohm) which will give you a current of 3mA which will be very dim.</p><p>A better value would be 510R (green/brown/brown) which would give you 15mA. 470R (yellow/violet/brown) or 560R (green/blue/brown) would be fine too.</p><p>There's a good calculator to help you choose values <a href="http://www.hobby-hour.com/electronics/ledcalc.php" rel="nofollow">HERE</a>.</p>
<p>Right, thanks for pointing this out :)</p><p>I'll change it asap as not to confuse others.</p><p>The reason it must have worked with me (and reviewing the packets) is because I wasn't using standard LED's but thanks heaps for bringing it up :D</p>
<p>I did change a few things, but they were things I wrote, not what you wrote. ;)</p>
<p>Aha...</p>
<p>I also put the original cover image as the last picture in step one, I think it works better. ;) I also wrote a note on it. XD</p>
<p>It is much better now! It was a bit hard for me to figure out what order to do them in, because some of the pictures looked similar. But I did it! (I guess) XD</p>
<p>Yes, well done!</p><p>How do you like the thumbnail?</p><p>You've gotta do them 600x500 pixels ;)</p>
<p>I think it looks cool! ;)</p>
