First, you need to gather your supplies
- LED bulb
- AA battery pack with wires
- Soldering Iron
- Solder wire
- 2 AA batteries
- Altoids mint can
- velcro if you want to secure the battery back
Step 1: Drill a Appropriate Sized Hole in the Altoids Can So the LED Can Fit.
I drilled the hole on the side because of the size my battery holder was.
Step 2: Put the LED in the Hole on the Can.
After you drilled the hole you need to insert the LED bulb to make sure it will fit.
Step 3: Putting in the Battery Holder
You could add velcro if you wanted to make sure the battery holder stays in place if not just put the battery holder in the can.
Step 4: Solder the Red Wire to the Bottom of the Light Bulb
Solder the positive wire (red wire) to the bottom of it.
Step 5: Now Solder the Black Wire to the Side of the LED Bulb
The negative wire ( black wire ) is soldered onto the side of the light bulb.
Step 6: Put in the Battery Holder
All I did for this step was I put in the battery holder to make sure it fits and it did.
Step 7: Add the Two AA Batteries
I added in the two AA batteries to the holder.
Step 8: Switch It on to Make Sure It Works
I switched it on to make sure it worked and the light came on.
Step 9: Final Step
Now just turn it off and close it.
Now you have a working Altoids flashlight.
