Well, I made a light. I forgot the resistor before I tested the light. Good thing they gave me extra lights. I made another light, I add resistor to light. Light works. Yay!
Okay, so there are no instructions or at least no instructions I understand on how to use the 12 port driver board they gave me. I get that this is what will power all lights at once and allow me to attach the switch and power supply. I don't get how I'm supposed to attach the LED to it. Or the power supply or the switch. The diagram shows the resistors on the board. I followed the instructions for creating the LED. Sort of. It doesn't say anything about attaching the resistor so I followed another tutorial that said to solder the resistor to the LED then the wire to the resistor. Then I was all, well now what? Lol. If I messed up another light by attaching the resistor in that way, I'm not super upset about it. They did give me extra I can try again. Basically, I'm super confuzzled. This is so not in my wheelhouse. http://www.paragrafix.biz/instructions/NLK2-1.pdf
But look at the glowy light though. I did a thing!
