Step 1: MAterials

What will I need to make a flashdark, you ask? Well can't you see the name of this step is called materials?
1. A flashlight that takes batteries.
2. Gypsie dust (optional).
3. Some sparkles (optional).

Step 2: The Flashlight

Ok so now is the part where your screwed if you haven't found a flashlight yet! If you have it, pick it up right now. Study it, and continue on to the next step!

Step 3: Battery Cover

Ok, so now your wondering what to do, right? WELLLLLLL you need to remove the battery cover, if you don't remove it then this instructable will be a waste of time... After the battery cover is off, take out the batteries/battery I can't stress this enough. When I first made this flashdark, I accidentaly took the batteries in... Big mistake... Don't Make the same mistake I did.

Step 4: Time to Make It Dark!

Now that the batteries/battery are/is out, put them in but instead of the right way put them in the wrong way!

Step 5: Put the Battery Cover Back On

The name of the step is self explanatory!

Step 6: Work It!

All you have to do to work your new flashdark 3000 is click the button, and. *BAM!*

    I FOUND SOMETHING NEW! if you put one battery in the right way, and one in backwards, it's half light and half dark!

    Please don't do this. Aside from not turning your flashlight into a flashdark, putting the batteries in backwards will make them overheat and possibly explode.

    What?? If it's a regular flashlight then nothing will change. If it's an LED flashlight, well, let's hope it has reverse voltage protection, or you might blow up the LED.

    you should do your homework dude, LED is an abbreviation for Light Emitting Diode, especially the diode part is important, because if you would reverse the polarity exactly nothing would happen, because the current flow is blocked

    Up to a certain point, yes. But excess voltage through the diode (and especially high power diodes) will quickly damage them - their reverse voltage threshold is usually only 5V or less.
