Materials Needed

  • A plastic bottle
  • Two 1.5 volts batteries
  • A battery holder
  • 20 millimetre of copper tape
  • A 2.2 volts bulb
  • 1 bulb holder
  • Rubber bands
  • 75 millimetre of insulated wire
  • Soldering iron
  • Solder
  • Cutter
  • A pair of scissors


  • First, cut out the top half of the bottle using the cutter. You can trim the rough edges with the scissors.
  • Place the top half of the bottle on the remaining part in an inverted fashion.
  • With the soldering iron, make a hole in the cap of the bottle. This hole should be big enough to allow the bulb pass through.
  • Now, attach the battery to the bottom half of the bottle.
  • Solder two wires to the two ends of the bulb. Solder the free ends of the wire to the copper tape placed at the edge of the bottom half of the bottle.
  • Finally, wrap the rubber band around the wires. Once the two halves of the copper tape come in contact, the torch is activated.
