the LEDs he used were from night vision goggles, which means they arent the best, try take newer more powerful LEDs for a bright light, and for a "switch, take 1 LED wire tape it to the postitive side, and dont tape down the other wire to the negative side, push it down for on/off, u might wana tape it to the middle of one of the sides just incase the wires arent long enough

Oh, you mean you second that.

It certainly is petite, though it would be smaller and brighter with an A23 (you'd need a resistor though). But my question here (and I'm not trying to be mean) is, does taping a bulb to a battery warrant the creation of an instructible? Maybe add a switch in, whether it's improvized or manufactured.

hek i got those binoculars. they are from that spy thing

jesseluna (author)2008-06-24

Were the binoculars chosen just cause they have a regular light/LED? Or is there a specific reason to use them.
