This may possibly be the easiest installation of L.E.D. (Light Emitting Diode) Lights in the world, if not THE best. In just a few simple steps, YOU can make a small portable L.E.D. installation that will last for ages! It is especially useful in applications such as remote control cars and small, tight spaces.

Step 1: Materials
All you need in this instructable are three simple materials that you will easily find in an electronics store as well as some tools including scissors.
You will need:
1. L.E.D. (Light Emitting Diode) Light
2. 1.5V Button Cell (found in watches)
3. Electrical Tape
Step 2: Installing the L.E.D. to the Cell
Using the picture below as a guide, touch the ends of the L.E.D. to the polars of the cell. If the L.E.D. doesn't light up, switch the L.E.D. around. If it doesn't light up again, you may need to try again, or use another L.E.D. or cell.
Step 3: Putting It All Together
If you are happy with the position of the L.E.D. Tape the whole "she-bang" together using the electrical tape and, VOILA! You can make as many as you want to use as "neon" underbody lights for your remote control car.
