Once everything is confirmed to work properly, apply foam tape to the backs of the switch, lipoly charger board, and battery and stick in place, routing the battery wire so that it does not impede the compact’s closure.

Plug in via USB to charge up the battery, and use the clicky on/of switch to toggle power! In this particular compact, there’s even still room for the makeup! This also makes a great portable photography/videography light!

What mods would you make to this project? A knob to control LED brightness? A microcontroller to make animated patterns among the sequins? Show off your electronics projects on the Adafruit Show & Tell!
