Mini LED/battery lamp :)

led-lampI got to wondering how hard it would be to wire some LEDs I had (left over from another project) straight to batteries… Not hard at all, it turns out, thanks to Instructables.com (LED Throwies, LEDs for Beginners).

The LEDs I had include pre-wired resistors, so that saved some labor.

One phonecall to my dad (an EE) and a quick trip to Radio Shack later: Light!

Someday I might have to try the Electronic Peasant’s ping-pong lantern, too (it’s at the bottom of the page).
