## Step 1: Circuit Diagram and Parts 電路圖和零件

You need LED tape, a switch, wire and batteries. The circuit diagram pictured shows how simple this all is!

The video below is a complete and detailed guide on how to make this project. This can also be found on YouTube search for "howard taylor iPhone selfie light" or click the link below and subscribe.

## Step 2: Cut Wood and Glue Clips in Place 切割木板和將夾板黏於手機放置處

Cut an appropriate piece of ply wood to size and jigsaw an iPhone sized hole in the middle. Using wood glue, glue the clips in place for the iPhone to rest in.

## Step 3: Stick Down the LED Tape 貼上LED膠帶

Put a thin layer of wood glue on the surface of the plywood and let it dry. This makes a good surface for the LED tape to adhere to. Then stick down the LEDs.

## Step 4: Wire Up and Quick Test and Check 接線、快速測試和確認

Using the circuit diagram, wire up the LEDs to a 12v battery to test functionality. Current drawn is about 400mA, which means if you use lithium ion batteries like I did, you should get 3 or 4 hours of light from this.

## Step 5: Check Wiring and Fit Batteries 確認電線和安裝電池

Check your wiring, fit the batteries and switch with hot glue and secure/route cables appropriately.

## Step 6: Test the Results 　測試結果

Fit the final swing clip to hold the phone in place and test your lovely new light! It's great for macro work, videos and particularly good at selfies leaving a lovely square of light in people's eyeballs. A professional look!

I'm using this for my YouTube channel videos. Expect the quality of my movies to get better!

I have recently fitted a handle and a tripod mount. Check out the pictures!
