USB Cigar Flash Memory (with LEDs)


Step 6: Add a Power-On LED

In this step we will add an LED that will glow when the key is connected to an USB port. Consult for more details.

Connect the red LED #2 to the outer USB connectors. Do not forget the 10K resistor in series.

Glue and tape the whole.

Test. (I used an external HD with built-in USB hub, but you can connect directly to your computer, if you trust yourself.)
