    I made these back in the 80's.

    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!

    BTW, you should use a white led, for moar brightness :]

    cool, i gotta try this soon.

    He's not a minimalist, he just likes making things way too simple. Oh wait...

    aHA! You CAN hotglue electronics if everything is in contact! I KNEW IT!

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