Introduction: 9V Lantern

About: I like to tinker with just about anything, sometimes it works out in the end. Have fun looking at the projects, try tearing something open and let me know how it goes. cheers, -Joe

I had two goals with this, one don't solder and two make it like post over on gizmodo showing a 9V Lantern.

I had recieved a few emails about making things without soldering, I guess to some thats intimidating. So here I skipped that complicated soldering process...

Step 1: Parts

9v battery
flashlight bulb
bulb mount
film canister
9v battery snap connector
hot glue

Step 2: Wiring

So wire your light bulb mount up, I just stripped the ends of the wire and twisted them around the posts. Remember I am trying not to solder here...

Step 3: Glue

put some hot glue on the bottom of the bulb base/socket/thingamajig and glue it to the bottom of the film canister.

Step 4: Cut Out

cut out the inner ring of the film canister lid, this should be big enough to fit the top of the battery in snugly.

Step 5: Put It Together

So drop the top on, run the 9v battery snap connector through and bask in the glory of the lantern like ambiance.
