    Very nice video and instructable. The way I you put your battery power together will limit you a little bit though. The AA batteries will drain first and then, although the 9V battery will still have plenty of power, your light won't work anymore. DId you actually test if it ran for 300hrs or did you calculate the time? If so,could you share the calculation?

    Hi again. 6 - 9 hours sounds much more realistic. Again, great light, good work. I should make one and add it to my camping gear. Thanks for the instructable.
