Take a Regular 8" Long piece of electrical tape and cut it so you have two long thin pieces of tape.
Use one to do the following,

Start the tape flat on the - (negative) Side of the battery - COVERING the divide between - and + completely

Then, Start to STRETCH THE ELECTRICAL TAPE FLAT, Over the RIM Of the battery, so it should be overflowing onto both sides of the battery and making a small black circle around the whole thing (Like your using the battery as a tire and tightening the tape by rolling the tire)

You want to TIGHTLY and securely make a black rim of electrical tape all the way around

When you have gone around the whole battery 1.5 times, angle the tape to make another flat strip, intersecting the one you did to start this tape.

You should End up with your battery a little more than half covered on the flat sides as pictured.

Your Battery is now prepared to have the LED Attatched

Forgive my ignorance. Can you explain me what a strobe magnet is?

It look like a normal led-throwie, but with a RGB led. I could be wrong too.
