This is a simple thing you can do with a set of solar path lights to turn them into portable lanterns.
You will need :
- A set of solar path lights
- Some small Chinese lanterns
- Some small gauge wire (stranded, not solid)
- Your Brain
Step 1: Gut Your Light
Break open you box of path lights and get out the good parts. These are the bits with the batteries and the solar panel. The model I got was fairly easy to pull apart, a screwdriver behind the plate popped the top off.
With a set of cutters, make 2 small notches in the opening where the solar panel lives.
