Step 1: What You Need-
For This Music You Will Need-
tip31c NPN Transistor
Christmas Lights (DC Power Or Battery Not 110VAC 220VAC 240VAC Or Solar!)
Male To Male Jumper Wires
Male 3.5mm AUX Cord
Female 3.5mm AUX Plug

Step 3: Connecting the Audio Jack to the Female Audio Jack
First connect the ground wire to the bottom.
Next connect the R wire to the second,
Lastly connect the L wire to the top one.
Step 4: Test
FIRST DISCONNECT ANY POWER! 33volts DC can hurt you if it gets into your blood stream!
Second cut the wire and find the positive and negative wires and connect the positive together leaving the negative apart.
Now test the the power by touching the wires together,
Step 5: Breadboard
Connect the GND wire from the audio jack to the right leg of the transistor,
Now connect the L of the audio jack to the left leg of the transistor,
Connect the GND from the power to the right leg of the power supply,
Lastly Connect the GND of the lights to the middle leg of the transistor.
Step 6: Test
Turn the power on and plug the Jack into the phone and volume it all the way up!
