  • Hi
    I'm a complete beginner! To make the garden lamp I assume I'll also need to buy a soldering iron and solder. Am I correct and is that all I will need if i buy the items listed for the automatic garden lamp kit?
    Thanks

    • Hi Vicky,

      You are correct, this kit is a self assembly kit which requires soldering.
      The only other thing you might want is some wire if you need to put the bulb a distance away from the PCB. Full instructions for assembling the kit are provided, and the battery holder and bulb are connected as in the diagram above.
