    hello, I am completely new to electronics and know very little. I am looking to build a sort of flashbang with this 12 volt LED:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...ue&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=A3US98LJH5LOGM

    I would like to make this circuit as simple as possible. I am trying to make a non lethal distraction device for playing manhunt. I would like the led to blink at a very fast rate. Could you please draw a schismatic in terms that I could understand with very little knowledge of electronics. Also if it's not too much more complicated I would like it to turn on with a switch but then turn off after like 10-30 seconds.

    Thank you,
    Lilchumy99

    I don't know any terms so u will have to talk to me in simple terms. Also could you please make a schematic? All I need is for a 12 volt battery to power a circuit that makes the 12 volt bulb flash at a very fast rate.

    It will not take much more. Also not any complicated circuit is there. Simply connect the 12V battery to these LEDs in parallel. Also connect a resistor in the series with each LED to limit the current.

    Yes but that would simply power on the Led's. No? i need them to flash on and off very quickly. like a strobe.

    You need 2 x 555 circuits One to time for 30 seconds The other to flash at 10 - 30 Hz.
