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.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
You will need
2.one led of your choice
3.one button cell batery (remember to check the voltage)
4.One bottle cap
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
