Hello all,

Firstly, new to anything of electric components so forgive me. But, want to work on a project and hoping for help in identifying what I need. Very simple concept...

  • I want to incase a low light LED (used just as a indicator) in a thin metal housing.
  • LED is powered by 2-3 coin batteries(incased in housing as well).
  • When metal housing is touched, LED comes on. Released it goes out.
  • Will be trigger 20-30 times a day w/ battery life expectancy 2 months or more if possible.
Is this doable? ANY help would be GREATLY appreciated...

Robert

How big a box? 100% exposed metal on all surfaces, or only certain areas?
