Step 3: Power and Resistor Conjunction

This step covers the Resistor and power part. This is the part that connects to the LEDs and supplies power.

Take a square of PCB and solder a brwn-blk-brwn resistor (100 Ohms) and take the 6 CM wire from the LED line and solder it to one end of the resistor. Now solder the POSITIVE end of the 9 volt battery clip to the other end of the resistor. Now take the NEGATIVE end of the 9 Volt battery clip and the POSITIVE end of the AA clip and solder it together. Take the NEGATIVE end of the AA battery clip and attach a Slide Switch (See image CIMG2470) and take the very short wire on the RIGHT side of the LED line and solder it to the switch too.
this step is really not clear. Could you put it together outside of the box?
i'm not even sure what use this can be, all the leds are on one end right? red lights always face towards the rear on any vehicle, white or bright bright blue always face forward, and ambers are always facing outwards to all directions. is this for a train set or something cause i'm really not understanding the true purpose of this to be honest. Liitle more explaination perhaps? and maybe a drawn schemetic? please? :P
Also bright white flashlight....
"Turn an altoids box into a bike light that includes a bright brake light" Say that ten times fast. Pretty rockin!
this was a clunky model I made I made a better one, should upload it in a while.
could you add a small diagram of how the boards soldered up so I can make this?
