Intro: Bottle Cap Flashlight

a simple flashlight made from a button cell battery bottlecap and an led. Its not very Bright but its a nifty little craft and super simple.  It  is my  entry for the flashlight contest.

Enjoy =)

Step 1: Tools and Materials

You will need
1.tape
2.one led of your choice
3.one button cell batery (remember to check the voltage)
4.One bottle cap
5.Glue
Pliers
and wire cutters

Step 2: The Electronics

This was meant for someone just getting into radioelectronics so it isnt the best light around.

Take the led and bend about 3 milimeters of it 90 degrees.
next tape it to the battery.

Then curve the other prong.

Note:you do not want the curved prong to touch the battery therefore you will want to bring it up and away from the battery.

Step 3: Finishing Up

Now we are going to put it all together.

First we cut out a cardboard circle.(make sure it is big enough to cover the entire cap)

next tape it to the curved prong

put a dab of glue on the cap and put everything together.

when everything is dry put a ring of glue around the outer edge of the cardboard

to seal it all together.

Step 4: Finished
