Introduction: Snap Circuits Super-Simple Capacitor/Light/Rechargeable Battery
This is a really simple light, battery charge reader, capacitor charger, and if you like watching a pointer go up and down then its also a game.
If you are wondering how it recharges batteries, then follow the following bonus.
BONUS: How to charge a battery in this.
You can substitute the B4 for a B1 and then put the positive jumper wire from the solar panel on to the positive contact, wait a very short while and voila! Your charger is made!

Step 1: The Parts
You will need:
2 slide switches (or more if you want to substitute some press switches for slide ones)
1 Solar Panel (B7) http://www.snapcircuits.net/products/product_detai...
1 3.6 volt Battery (B4) http://www.snapcircuits.net/products/product_detai...
1 Hand Crank (HC) http://www.snapcircuits.net/products/product_detai...
1 3 Way switch (S5) http://www.snapcircuits.net/products/product_detai...
3 Press switches (S2) http://www.snapcircuits.net/products/product_detai...
2 470uf capacitors
1 100uf capacitor
1 LED (I used D5 http://www.snapcircuits.net/products/product_deta...
Some 1-snap wires
Some 2-snap wires
Some 3-snap wires
Some other snap wires (up to 6-snap)
Lots of fun
UPDATE: I forgot to add that you need some short jumper wires-about 3.
Step 2: Assembly
Use the pictures for help...
I built this before I took pics of the circuit...
Sorry for the inconvenience that this may have caused
There is a more basic version of it above (took before I knocked all the pieces off the board)
