Make a USB Soda Bottle Lamp

Picture of Make a USB Soda Bottle Lamp
I will show you how to make a USB lamp from a soda bottle and a flashlight bulb. This is my first instructable, so if I mess something up, please tell me.

Sorry for the bad pictures, the only camera I had available was my phone camera, and I couldn't get it to focus sometimes.

Step 1: Parts List

Here is a list of the parts you will need.

> Soda bottle - I used a glass one.
> Flashlight bulb and holder - Make sure its rated about 5 volts or more.
> USB cable and connector (if necessary)
> PC (to power it with)
> Wire
> Glue gun & glue
> Solder Iron and solder

Step 4: Done!

Picture of Done!
Connect the USB cable. Your new lamp should light up. If it doesn't, you probably either have a short, loose wire/cold solder joint, or a bad bulb. You may also want to put some tape around the top, so most of the light goes down though the bottle.

Congratulations!
