Turn an old junk (or new) lantern into a nice multi purpose light.
Looks nice on your desk or hanging in your room or perhaps a camping trip. As it USB powered it has limits, However this can also be made to be powered by a few AA or AAA battery's and cell phone battery 3.7 volt lithium really lights these lights up good. So there are a few ways to power this device its up to you. As you can see this lantern does not have the correct globe, or any globe for that matter so I had to come up with something and make my own globe which made this build more fun for me. I hope you all enjoy it.
