I know this really isn't modding a computer but I thought you guys would think this was neat. And im extremelly bored.
1:5mm White(or any color you want)LED 3.6volt 20mA 1100mcd(or higher) P/N: 276-0320
1:Momentary Pushbutton Switch or Toggle Switch. P/N: 275-1547
1:22-Ohm Resistor, 1/2 watt 5% tolerance P/N: 271-1103
22 guage or thinner wire
3 AAA Batteries
This is the top of it. Switch and LED
I know the picture is crap but its from my camera phone, I apologize. This is the inside and how i wired it.
Switch on the left and LED on the right with the resistor in between
This is it working YAY
This is the schematic:
Be sure to connect the short wire on the LED to the Battery not the resistor
Im planning on building another one tommorow but maybe not out of a TicTac box and I will update it here. Let me know what you think.
