Before next to hard step, we need to make the plan for this Selfie Lamp, so

• Open the case and i make all of the inside flat, so i cut all the parts inside the case
• After that, we can going to the next step

Step 3: Apply Your Plan to the Case

After you finish planning the case, apply it to your case. Just follow the instructions:

My first audio jack is to big for the case, so i use a new smaller audio jack. So it will looks better.

Step 5: The Circuit

So this is the circuits:

• The LED is using parallel circuit
• The Positive pole of the LED is going to battery positive and one again is going to Diode and right channel of your audio jack (LED-Battery-Diode-Right channel)
• The negative pole of the LED is going to battery negative and one again is going to Gnd of your audio jack (LED-Battery-Gnd)
