Electric Projects

3 LED LightContinuing on with the jam jar theme I wanted to make a 3 led light.  Here I decided to use 2 lids glued together so I had somewhere to mount the on / off switch. I mounted the switch in a hole cut in the top lid and drilled a holed in the second lid for the wires to go through.

While the lid has a coating on the inside, I needed to use electrical tape on the inside to prevent any short circuits.

Now, the light works great, but I have no idea ho long the battery will last with 3 leds.

Next up, I want to try making a desk lamp using 2 jars and a power supply plugged into a wall socket.  In this case I would use a lot more leds.
