There comes a time when we all need a torch, but no one wants to plop down loads of cash for one. DIY fanatic Kip Kay shows you how to turn a dim, cheap $US10 torch into something worthy of $US95.
Sure, it won't feel like a $US95 torch — it'll still feel like a cheap piece of plastic — but at least you'll be satisfied with its brightness. You'll need to do a bit more than just replace the bulb for this hack, since the new one will require bigger, 3V batteries — so make sure you have a drill on hand to get rid of the battery-holding ridges inside. Check out the video to see how it's done.
