This Instructable hopefully shows u how to make a useful, handy, and probably fun pocket lamp.
1st off sorry for the image quality. the camera sux at close range even with macro on.
Also i had to draw the instructions as i have had this made for some time and don't have the bits to remake it (and I am not taking it apart :D)
Although i have made this thing a long time ago (long before the LED challenge) I still want to try and share how to make your own.
Step 1: Materials.
Ok you will need:
1 Bright LED (i had a Blue one that was in the lighter i used to make mine, along with the battery case)
3 button cell battery's (3x AG3 i think)
1 plastic tube (wide enough to fit the button cells with room for wire and tape around them)
Tracing/transparent paper 8nice and frosted :3
clear tape (invisible scotch tape is best as it it is just like the tracing paper used)
black electrical tape.
thing to use as button (i got mine from an old laser pen it was the external nob used to press the momentary switch inside)
wire / paper clip (anything that can be used to make contacts and be used to make a switch too)
sharp knife (aways useful)
drill (for button hole)
soldering iron / solder (just in case ;)
