9 Volt Mini Flashlight

Intro: 9 Volt Mini Flashlight

I had an old mini light bulb laying around, so I decided to turn it into a flashlight.

Items needed:

9 Volt battery
9 Volt adapter
Listerine Pocket Packs
Microswitch
Small light bulb (or Christmas tree light)
Thin cardboard
Pencil or pen
Soldering Gun
Glue Gun

Step 1: Gather Supplies

Pretty simple step. Trace around 4 sides of the 9 Volt and add an extra quarter of an inch around the skinny sides to attach this to the main light. This will be your battery holder.

Step 2: Soldering

Take your light, microswitch, and 9 Volt adapter and solder them in this fashion. Once everything is soldered, test it before placing it in the light holder.

Step 3: Cutting the Pocket Packs Box

Cut a hole in the side opposite to the opening for the light.. Then cut a smaller hole in the other side for the cords to go through. After that, glue the solid yellow part to the battery holder.

Step 4: Gluing the Battery in Place.

Attach the battery to the light and place the light in the holder. Test where you want your switch to be and glue in place. Careful not to glue the switch so that you cant press it down, be light with the glue there.

Step 5: Done!

Now have fun with your mini flash light and impress your friends with what you made. Very handy when you drop your little things in the dark!

    Thanks, I don't know what kind of bulb it is, but I tested it with the 9v and it worked. HEHE.

    Neat. You should specify in your list of materials that the bulb is a special 9v bulb, not an LED. I just assumed it was an LED bulb.
