Introduction: $3.00 Altoids Charger (EASY BUILD) (CHEAP)

About: Everything Hookah Related… and other stuff for some reason
I know your thinking i have seen hundreds of these but have you ever seen one so easy to build?

LETS GET STARTED

Things you will need :
  1. L78MO5CV Voltage Regulatorhttp://www.taydaelectronics.com/ic-integrated-circuits/voltage-regulators/lm7805-l7805-7805-voltage-regulator-ic-5v-1-5a.html
  2. Toggle Switch http://www.taydaelectronics.com/mini-toggle-switch-spdt-on-on.html
  3. LED [ any color :) ] http://www.taydaelectronics.com/leds/led-3mm-green-water-clear-super-bright.html
  4. Female USB port http://www.taydaelectronics.com/usb-type-a-female-connector.html
  5. Resistor (sorry forgot what ohm it is you can use a decoder on it and i will post a pic of the resistors)
  6. Resistor (sorry forgot what ohm it is you can use a decoder on it and i will post a pic of the resistors)
  7. Some type of board to solder connections on to
  8. 9V battery Clip http://www.taydaelectronics.com/9v-9-volt-battery-clip-connector.html
  9. Some type of Board http://www.taydaelectronics.com/hardware/prototyping-boards/small-stripboard-94x53mm-copper.html
  10. And ALTOIDS TIN (DUH HAHA) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Blank-Altoids-Type-Metal-Tin-Survival-Kit-Containers-/281113404892
COST : ABOUT 3:00
