Outdoors can be dark, no light around and you are searching for your drink inside of your tent. And you are not able to find it. What a horrible scenario.
Of course you can use matches, candles, stinking gasoline lanterns or you are using Horatius Steam´s light box.

It is smart, bright and easy to use.  ;-)

And it is driven only by two parallel connected AAA cells.

Let´s see at the following steps how this is possible.

Step 1: What you need

A disposal camera
One or two battery holders
A switch
An energy saving bulb
A nice housing for all components

Some materials to decorate the box.
if you added a bigger battery bank would the charge last longer say 1 or 2 D cells?
Yes, but parallel. More than 1.5V will damage the inverter.<br>
Thanks now i know thanks for the info i started on my box yesterday cant wait to finish it
I tried this project, its great... I did use slightly different parts for the electronic side but it does the same job and i tried to add a steam punk theme.<br>Thanks for the inspiration! :)
Sehr sch&ouml;n!
my god its beautiful
what a brilliant (pardon the pun) idea.
