Default AquaLight - Re-use spare LEDs from Flashlights

Have you ever shined a flashlight around the house and noticed how beautiful it looks under a glass of water? Now you can capture that beauty in a water bottle of your choice! So, build your AquaLight today!

AquaLight is a portable flashlight you may use around the house to gently light up an entire room. It may also be converted to plug in to a wall outlet, and thus be used as either a low-powered lamp or beautiful night-light. The best part is, it's so cheap and easy that anyone can build it, so build yours TODAY!!

Well, with all these flashlights we're taking apart, some of use build up a nice stack of high-powered LEDs we don't know what to do with.

This should be an easy project for everyone here on the forums, and the reward is an alluring AquaLight.

This project consists of taking a high powered LED (mine was from the big MXDL) and wire it up to a cheap 3x AAA battery holder from a $1 flashlight. You still use the $1 flashlight's casing and tail-switch in order to keep everything neat with a nice switch. In the end, it should look something like this:







Much more detailed instructions can be found here: AquaLight - Water Bottle Flashlight

Also, this instructable is in the flashlight contest. I would greatly appreciate it that if you like this instructable and are already a member, if you could maybe vote for me? I really want that leatherman!

Additionally, the AquaLight is very easy to build and should take some people here just a few minutes. If you do end up building one, I would greatly appreciate it if you could leave a comment on here AND/OR on the instructable itself, maybe attaching a picture. If you upload it on instructables, you can then insert image url here, so it'd kill two birds with one stone But again, only do so if you actually enjoyed it, this isn't begging for votes, just asking that if you build it, share your AquaLight to the rest of us.

Last thing I'll mention is that the AquaLight is a great project if you have a younger brother or sister, or maybe even some children, nephews or grandchildren with which you can do a beginner's project with them - maybe teach them to solder
