This is a very quick and easy way to make a black light flashlight if you have the parts in hand.
This project should take you under 5 minutes to complete.
If you're not a member of CSI, don't worry. There are other fun and practical uses for a portable black light. I have used mine to help spot pet stains on carpet and let the kids make fun drawings with highlighters.
Step 1: Materials
- ultra violet led (courtesy of a kids meal movie toy)
- mini mag flash light
Step 2: Assembly
Disassemble the toy to get the led anyway you see fit, as long as you don't smash the led. Remove the top of the mini mag and the bulb. Trim the ultraviolet led wires, if needed to insert in the mini mag bulb socket. Replace the top and enjoy!
