I had a few 1.5 volt watch batteries, so I put a spacer between them and wrapped them it tape. when I took the spacer out and attached the LED, the batteries just had to be squeezed to connect the circuit and I had a mini flashlight!

its kinda tricky to keep the glue from going under the wire. So you have to KEEP it in contact.
