Introduction: The "LEDPOD" - 4-in-1 Photography Panel

Picture of The "LEDPOD" -  4-in-1 Photography Panel

I can't really explain this crazy project that took me a couple months, but shortly it is a:

Tripod for a phone

A dimmable L.E.D flashlight (L.E.D strips i bought from eBay for really cheap)

Phone charger

Storage container

It can be plugged directly into a car to be used in dark areas

In the fourth picture you can see there is a round component, it is a retractable wire i took apart from a vacuum cleaner and it connects to the power adapter (1.5 amps output)

And yes, everything work on 12 Volts,which means i can also connect it to a car battery...

That is one interesting contraption! :) Do you have any pictures you could share where you used the light to light the subject? Very curious on the effect you will get from it!

Thanks, I started using the ledpod (and the LED-timate flashlight, .if you've seen it) to light up the pictures I take on my white background for my Instructables projects but I noticed that the best pictures are simply with the camera flash, I guess the external lighting ruins the colors.

Other than that, I use It a lot as for lighting for projects, my room when I want it to have only a bit of light, for outside, and more

I made the LEDPOD many months before I found out about Instructables, So I don't have any instructions :(

Basically, Everything is mounted onto a Tripod, And connected in series to a 12V power supply
