DIY Steampunk Emergency Light

NewImage

Make an emergency light with steampunk aesthetics. by Junophor via instructables

In one of my former instructables I explained the way to work with High Voltage by using a flash module of an disposal camera.
Now I want to present you an project which followed this. All the photos had been taken and the different components had been put together. Then a new idea came in my mind. I tried to put the three components: an CFL-Tube, an modified electronic from an disposal camera, and the two AA batteries for using 3,0 Volts toghter in one big PET -Preform Tube to create an Emergency Light.
So Look at my “Emergency Light Torch”:

It creates enough light to find your way out if it is dark inside a house or if your car is broken down on outside a city or village or so. Even when you sleep in a tent while your are doing camping you can use it very well. I only changed the switch and all other parts fit closed together.
To show the way how it works I decided to give you a glance without the steampunk wrapping with a copper tube and some brass elements. This outfit will follow later;-)))
