How to Make an Improbably Bright LED Task Lamp


Step 6: Done!

Picture of Done!
And we're done!  The lamp really is absurdly bright--the background in this picture looks dark but is really normal room lighting.  There is so much light that everything else is underexposed.

Good luck, keep safe, and feel free to ask me if you have any problems.

By the way, Deal Extreme sells 100 watt and even 200 watt version of this LED emitter and driving circuit--that's more light than even I need but you might need more!

And don't forget: I made it at TechShop, and you can too.  Go to to find one in your area.
