Hi all, My name is Dexter, I am 15 years of age and this is my first instructable. It will show you the inside of the USB cable. And will show you how to connect a light to it. NOTE: Do not directly connect an LED to a USB cable, use a resistor. I appologise for the poor quality of the photos.
Step 1: Strip one end of the USB cable
Strip an end of the USB cable, remember to leave a USB port on one end, show the wires inside (with their coloured covers). The wires should be the same as in the photo below, the red wire = 5 Volts (+) and the black wire is the ground (-), for now ignore the other two wires I will hopefully make an instructable about them at a later stage. We will only use the black and red wires for now.
