Bi-colour Mini Torch

February 24th 2016

A fun kit for all the family!
Available in several colour-combinations (red/green, blue/red and white/red), this bi-colour torch is an ideal first project for those interested in electronics. It would also serve as a great introduction to circuits, soldering and electronics.
The finished torch is functional, useful, and even better you can say you made it yourself!
Takes less then 15 minutes to make. Only requires soldering iron, solder and wire cutters (for trimming the resistor and LED leads).
Usage Suggestions
This is a great way of getting you or your children interested in electronics. There are only a few components to solder, the circuit is simple and can be understood by even those new to electronics. And once finished it can be used for years!
