Step 1: Measure Tin Foil

First, you will need atleast about 4 inches of tin foil.
Try to make it as neat as possible.

It should look like the second image when completed.

Step 2: Rolling the Battery in Tin Foil

It's very simple, just wrap the battery in tin foil ( positive (+) side down, negative (-) side up)
(refer to images for help.)

(caution: be aware the battery will heat up in the process in which you are wrapping it. Make sure the battery is securely wrapped or it WILL com bust.)

if the tin foil is too big, trim it, just make sure there is enough for the light bulb to touch.

Step 3: Insert Light Bulb

Make sure the light bulb touches BOTH!, tin foil and negative (-) side of the battery!


refer to images if necessary.


And that's it guys, 3 easy steps to make a light/flashlight

    Do not do this instructable. If the tinfoil touches each other, the battery heats up and...boom. I was tampering once,and i left tinfoil touching each other connected to battery for liek 1 min and boom.

    Good idea on making it more compact. The only reason why mine has two batteries is because it makes the bulb give off more light
