Turning a Halogen light into a more energy efficiant bulb. Converting what used to be 12 volts into aproxxamitly 3.5 V

In this instructable you will need the following
- Hammer
- Halogen bulb ( bought 2 for a doller at dollerama or just found around)
- LED light of your choice or 2
- watch battery or other power source

Step 1:

Take a hammer and lightly hammer the 2 prongs on the back of the halogwn bulb.
The bulb should slide threw and then you can take it out on the other side .
<p>Just yesterday I did something similar with a redundant 10 mm white LEDs. However, I had a reflector of light bulb that did not want to throw. </p>
Just tried it and works very well. It is cool indeed,<br>Thanks!<br>
