LED Backlight Bladerunner Pin #WearableWednesday

Light bar pin 00

Here’s a quick and easy wearable using our new LED backlight and a magnetic pin back, powered by a 3xAAA battery pack.

Light bar pin 01

Peel off the protective backing from the metal bar and stick the exposed adhesive to the back of the LED backlight. Trim the LED leads short as shown.

Light bar pin 02

Use some male-to-female jumper wires to plug the battery pack into the LED backlight (LEDs are polar, so if it doesn’t light up right away try switching the wires and be sure your battery pack is ON).

Light bar pin 03

Place the magnetic bar on the inside of your garment or bag, and it will stick to the metal bar, affixing the panel to your person.

Wear and enjoy!
