    27 Led Light Mod

    Wow, great idea ! You've got the transformer and the cigarette connector all in one. Makes a smaller footprint. I believe I have one or two of those chargers . I may have to mod a few like that, ;-) thanks for the comment,JC

    If you click on the #4 Power jack, it will link to the jacks I used. Usb jacks are a good idea. I had the dc jacks from another project, so I used them. Of course they also work with the dc adapter I use also. Thanks for the info, Cheers,JC

    Well, I do not say anywhere in this instructable that I run this light directly on 12 volts. Many people are reading that into the instructable, but this is not what I said. Please read the instructable carefully again. All five steps ! Thanks,JC

    Commented on and answered, several times, thanks,JC

    Please read the entire instructable, thanksJC

    Wow, just wow ! Some of these comments ! It reminds me of that commercial where people keep asking for iced tea at a lemon- aid stand. If you can't read the entire instructable, please DO NOT work with any electronic devices. Do not even plug in an electronic anything. In fact, please back away from that thing in front of you. It runs on electricity. You could be killed ! ;)

    This is true for individual LEDs. Wasn't sure about this particular circuit. Guess I got it right, cause it works just fine, ;)

    All this talk of rechargeble batteries and charge circuits gave me another idea !I have a camera that comes with a charging cradle. It would be awesome to have one for these lights. Just sit it in the cradle and charge it up. If I had a 3d printer I could print up the cradles hard parts. I'm a fairly good 3d modeler, so that part would be easy peezy. Oh well I'll do it the old fashioned way, with my two little pinkies, ;) I'll put up the instructable when I have something.

    I usually just search Google for free 27 led light Harbor Freight coupon and set the search tools time setting to 1 month. That gets me everything recent. Most times I use the image search. Then I can check the expiration date. As mentioned below, there are flyers and magazines that have the coupons also. Also you and print as many copies of these coupons you want. You could get one per day if you wanted to. Of course you have to purchase something. I usually go once a month and use a 20 % off coupon on whatever I buy. If I were closer I would go once a week. Hope this helps.

    Really enjoying all the comments guys ! In my opinion this is where the real good ideas are found. People adding to the design of things and improving on them. To everyone commenting about the polarity on leds and me using 12 volts, please read the entire instructable before commenting. I know a wee but about electronics. I was talking about the polarity of entire circuit. I'm going to hook it up both ways to see if I can make the magic smoke. But follow the instructable where I mention marking the wires for polarity. I think some people are just excited when they think they see an error, and rush to comment. I've done it , and then deleted my comment when I read further into the instructable. Its OK, I have no problem with actual corrections, they help me make my project better. Keep t...

    Yep, I'm in Ga. And my power just came back on ;) I had one of these 27 led things hanging around my neck. I looked like Iron Man walking around, LOL. Can't wait to get back to Harbor Freight and get a few more, Cheers, J.C.

    Thanks !

    Yes sir, I'm not sure if theres room in the case for a bigger battery. But you can definitely use rechargeable aaa's in it. Now to build a circuit to charge to batteries without taking them out, ;)

    Thanks !

    Really nice ! I'll have to stop by there and ck it out. Just curious, where did you get your light sockets ? I can find them in the home centers, but they're pricey. Thanks, J.C.
