Hi I recently was a little bored so i made a LED box that has on LED the lights up and blah blah blah. Now back on topic, how can i put in a switch so that i dont have to take the battery out all the time. I hve a DPDT switch lying around so could i use that
?

^Dude...that's all wrong.

Just disconnect the current to the LED on one side...

wtf... no its not... I have done it on all my tihings... You would have the LEDs on the input side instead though because theres no input or ouput for this.

You just dont like giving satisfaction to anyone but yourself.

^now by special do you mean retarded? haha jk but yes thats a pretty good layout to work from, try useing actual ground notations though an -> doesnt tell us much....not that it needs too but the ground symbol is there for a reason....

Wait, is this circuit you've made just an LED with a resistor or is it a guitar effect?
If its just an LED that lights up, take any point in the circuit and cut it (literally, with pliers). With your dpdt switch, take the two ends of wire you just cut through and join them to two pins on the switch - the pins will be arranged in a 3x2 fashion, so connect one wire to a centre pin, and another to one on the edge but the same side.
XXX Those are the pins on the dpdt

X00 Connect a wire to each of the 0s.

Keeley boy...you don't want to shunt the positive to ground as a general rule(pnp is an exception).

So, use a switch to disconnect one of the connections.
