I needed a good lantern for camping, so I deceided to make a 12 volt lantern that I run off of my 12 volt batteries. I used LED strip lighting for the illumination. I wrapped the the led strip around an empty toilet paper holder. I used glue to make sure that it stuck. I soldered red and black wires to to the positive and negative wires coming from the LED strip. on The other end I have connectors soldered on that i plug into my 12 volt battery.
