For the mobile DJ on a budget, the Chauvet Hurricane 700 is a great starter fogger for your setup. It is small and portable, puts out 1500 cfm of fog, has a wired remote, a 0.6L tank capacity and is $20 cheaper than the next model up, the Hurricane 900. But although the Hurricane 700 is cheaper, it lacks a key feature that the other more expensive Hurricane models have. A blue LED tank light so that you can monitor the amount of fog fluid in your tank in the dark.

So in this instructable, I will show you how to wire a Blue 5mm LED to your Hurricane 700 fogger and light up your fog tank!

1 Blue 5mm Super Bright LED
1 Unused Wall Charger (Rectifier) Note: the plug should read "Input: 120VAC Output 3-5VDC" If the VDC output is greater than 5V, your LED may explode.
1 3" Piece of Red Stranded Wire
1 3" Piece of Black Stranded Wire

Tools:
1 Wire Stripper
1 Hot Glue Gun
1 Soldering Iron
1 Roll of Solder
1 Hammer or Dremel

Now that you have gathered all of the required materials, proceed by removing all 7 screws from the body of the Hurricane 700. Store these in a safe place.

After removing all the screws, unscrew the top to the fog fluid tank and gently remove the aluminum top.

Next, gently pull out the fluid tank. Note that the tank is attached to the base with double sided foam. Set the tank aside and remove any fluid so that there are no accidental spills.

Finally set the whole unit aside because we will come back to it after assembling the LED Rectifier unit.

That is very cool! I assume that this mod would work for other foggers as well, since they're all pretty similar on the inside.
