      All:

      Becky Loncosky's husband has wired up one the flashlight microscope lights so that it plugs into a computer's USB port.  It turns out the voltage from a USB port is just right for the flashlights being used.

      You can check out the technical specs of USB voltages and power at:

      Have fun.
