Picture of How to Make an Electric Cigarette [very Easy]

this is a tutorial on how to make an electric cigarette and its very easy. I just saw The Tourist recently and thought to make an electric cigarette which Johnny Depp smokes but sorry, no water vapor.

Step 1: Tools and Materials

Picture of Tools and Materials

materials -

1 small push to on switch
2 1.5 volt button cells
1 orange LED or any colour
some amount of wire

tools -

a roll of brown tape [or transparent tape]
a pair of scissors 
glue gun

Step 2:

Picture of

Stick two of the cells together  with tape from the positive end to the negative end.

Step 3:

now bend a bit of the positive end of the LED and chop it a little.

Step 4:

Picture of

now cut a 6.3 cm wire and chop the plastic at 1 cm at the ends. Now tie it to the negative end of the LED.

Step 5:

Picture of

now connect that wire to one end of the switch like shown in picture and attach another piece of wire of 7.5 cm to the other end of the switch,then connect the battery from the - end to the + end

Step 6:

Picture of

now cut a piece of white paper measuring 21.5 cm in length and 8.1 cm in breadth then roll it with 1 cm in between. Then make it firm by sticking tape on both of the ends

Step 7:

Now insert the circuit  in the roll and make sure the switch is at the end but the LED part doesn't matter if it is close to the other end. Then heat up the glue gun put some glue above the LED and some behind the switch use picture for reference.


Step 8: How to Use??

To use this thing hold it like a normal cigarette and then bring it close to your mouth but before bringing it close, close your teeth and then bring it close and press the button with your teeth and TADA you have your cigarette! when you take it out the light will automaticaly turn off.

Nice, but why do you smoke your filter?!

You need a resistor in series with LED to limit the current to about 20mA

Nick_Tesla (author)JohnTom2013-09-24

no that's not always needed. Sometimes the internal renitence of the led is enough at lower voltages.
