    Hello
    i made this little light today:

    LED unit from cheap lighter

    [​IMG]

    i glued piece of plastic on the back to act like lineyard or ring attachment and glued the led wire to secure it more, but can be done without any of that

    [​IMG]

    now take the heat shrinking tube, pull over it and heat both ends. you should come up with something like this. It is waterproof

    We got small, cheap push button light

    That's really clever, I like it!

    Now I have to go buy one of those lighters to make one of my own...

    @ b.licious that`s a cheap lighter, i think you can find them in mix-merchandise stores or on the street stands
