Connect your USB cable into your USB port and the light should shine like in the photo below. That concludes this tutorial. Hope this helps you in any...
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.
