Step 4: Assembling the light circuit

Leave the wires on the JST connector long enough to allow the lid to swivel once it is all assembled.  Strip the ends of all the wires.  Solder one lead of the JST to the negative post of the battery holder.  Attatch the other to the negative post of the switch.  The small piece of wire gets soldered to the positive posts of the battery holder and the switch.  Insert battery and test the circuit.

way to one up somebody and their hard work they've done on their instructable.<br>Sorry but that is a big pet peeve of mine. Just like the guys who come around and say: Well i made such and such 20 years ago! And then describe this big elaborate design or what ever basically ending with a &quot;but yours is cool too&quot; note.<br><br>cool link, but being better or not is a matter of opinion. <br><br>oh well im replying to spam anyway. lol.
this comment was awesome! LOL, i so agree with you though.
Check out www.easy-macro.com No assembly required! :)
Wow. I don't have an iPhone, but this still looks really cool. It didn't look like it would work, but the pictures blew me away. 5 Stars.
Thanks! It will work with any camera phone. Just find agood place to attatch the suction cup and measure the radius to the camera.
This may work on my Motorola Razr also.<br /> Good Instructable!<br />
Nice project, could make a great field magnifier+camera.<br />
Pretty cool.<br /> <br /> Have you tried aiming the LED forward?&nbsp; They tend to be direcitional, and you might get better light if you aim it so the dome is pointing at whatever you're taking a photo of.<br />
I haven't.&nbsp; I'll have to give it a shot.&nbsp; The&nbsp;stronger lenses have a short&nbsp;focal length so they need to be really close to what they are magnifying.&nbsp; I may, in the future redo it with surface mount diodes.&nbsp;&nbsp;Those would&nbsp;face straight out.&nbsp;&nbsp;I have used it with a light table and that works great.&nbsp; &nbsp;
this has steampunk potential....<br />
<p>Definitely.&nbsp; I'll probably spruce it up a little.<br /> &nbsp;</p>
Thanks everyone! I'll try to post some more pictures soon.
Hey,<br /> <br /> I really like this, it's simple, and effective! Great job on this, can't wait for more =D<br />
wow cool!<br />
Wow....that is very cool.<br />
Very interesting!<br />
