Sorry for the grainy images, folks. My digital camera wasn't available, and all I had to take pictures was my video camera.
And, if you like my instructable, don't forget to rate it, and check out my other stuff.
Step 1: What You Need
- One Coldheat
- One Small Screwdriver (The small flathead on the Leatherman works well, but you would be better off with a more precise tool)
- One Soldering Iron
- One Mini Light Bulb with Socket (I used a 2.5 volt)
- Some Solder
- Wire Stripper (optional)
Step 2: Open Your Coldheat
Step 3: Get Rid of the White Socket
Remove the screws from the copper colored prongs, and pull off the white tip socket from the prongs, you need to keep only one prong, the one with two soldered wires attached to it. The other can be thrown away. You can throw the white socket away, you won't be needing it.
Step 4: Prepare Light Bulb
To all the techies: Yes, I know that the power in the circuit is probably too much for the light bulb and the socket. But I am not worried about it. So far, the light bulb hasn't burnt out yet, but if you know what kind of components I should add, please feel free to Personal Message me, and I will edit this Instructable accordingly.
Step 5: Install Light Bulb
Place the black cylinder back into place, and solder the wires for the light bulb as shown in the picture.
Step 6: Put It Back Together
Replace the screws that held the prongs, that way they won't touch. Then, put the case back together, add batteries, and turn it on. Put the white semi-transparent tip cover on, so that the light doesn't hurt your eyes.
