    Apr 9, 2014, 2:29 PM - electrical assistance needed...(with pics) #1

    Hey there,Im working on my right gauntlet & I trying to wire up a simple white LED in the front.
    I have the LED,the resistors,the battery? & the toggle switch for the gauntlet.
    Now can any one draw me up a diagram on how this going together.

    Heres what I got. Guy at the store helped,but was alittle unsure it it would work.
    Also not sure if I should use a 9V or something else for the power source.
    thanks in advance.

    LED


    Resistors


    Toggle switch

    I did also use a resistor calc & & this is what it told me would work.

    Brother, Buy a mini book light, or similar small flashlight that will fit in there. I'll be doing the same thing. Haven't modded that yet, though. Something like this: Amazon.com: Ultrathin Book Light - Silver (Untrathin) (9781935009146): Mighty Bright: Books

    I assume you're mildly savvy with soldering... Crack this open (Or something similar), extend the wires if need be to put that toggle switch in between the positive or negative wire to complete/disrupt the circuit.
