hey,,,, can i use a LED that is already used because in saudi arabia they dont sell LED,, they dont even know what LED means so can i or not??? reply ASAP thank you..
<p>Yes, for sure.</p>
Very nice, how many hours does it run on that tiny battery?
The battery has lasted several days running all day and night. We have several that have been running for months but they are turned on and off. Check out http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-LED-Color-Changing-Light/ for more lighting fun.
That is very impressive :) Thanks.
We hated the wires showing through the film canister so we came up with http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-LED-Color-Changing-Light/ It did take awhile to come up with the idea but now that we did it, it is SO EASY!
Cool! You can use the same idea for making yourself an additional bike light http://defol.io/voltri/lamp
