Step 1: The Flash Light

This kind of flashlight work with the action of a dynamo by the movement of the wheel, but it was broken so I dissassamble the whole thing an add a pair of Leds.

Step 2: Power Up.

Anybody of us have in our stuffs old cell phone batteries, so i figure that this can be usefull to power up my Flash light.

Step 3: Wiring and Soldering.

Put the Leds inside of the Lamp and solder to a thin wire, conect to the battery and that `s all...piece of cake isn´t....?

Step 4: "Im the NightRider..."

This Lamp is so usefull because the battery support about three days that constanting Light.
I like to ride with some folks in the deep of the night and its so cool when my bike hit the streets.

    I like this but you really should be using a resistor between your led and battery
