Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: ABOUT ORIGINAL PRODUCT

I have purchased this ''LED SOLAR EMERGENCY LIGHT BULB WITH CHARGING CABLE'' from amazon online store.
I think this product is a best selling product on amazon, because of product have a brilliant design (one of main reason to re-use it) and good product review.
To this low buying price, it works superbly with 6 months, after it stops working due to battery issue and left alone.
From this Christmas, I decided to alter it and re-use it.

Step 2: PLANNED RE-USE IDEA

I have planned to build it to hide our small-sized secret things from unauthorized persons.
It's a simple, unrisky DIY idea.

Step 3: DISCONNECT UPPER LIGHT COMPARTMENT COMPONENTS

The product contains two parts of the upper light compartment(solar panel, battery, USB charging port, main light charging port) and lower light compartment (bright light).
First, disconnect upper light compartment components of solar panel, USB charging port, main light charger port and it's wires.
After wires are removed successfully we have sufficient free space on the upper light compartment and it to be used as a safe place.

Step 4: DISCONNECT LOWER LIGHT COMPARTMENT COMPONENTS

Then disconnect lower light compartment components of LED bright light and it's wires.
We have a slight huge free space and it is used as a safe place.

Step 5: FIX AGAIN WIRE REMOVED COMPONENTS

Then fix all of the wire removed components in its place by strong glue and make main charging cord as DUMMY.

Step 6: STICK SPONGE (OPTIONAL)

This is an optional one of stick sponges inside on both light compartments,
Doing this, noise should be reduced while things are kept inside.

Step 7: RE-USE IDEA BECOMES PRACTICAL

Thus alter and re-use idea of emergency lantern light into a safe place is built.
In this lantern, we can keep our secret small things hide from others.

    We bought 4 of these lanterns at the Off Price Store - a local chain that sells things at a discount. Mine still work, two years later...but my husband is disabled and dropped his, and pieces have broken loose...the top still works but the bottom doesn't. I'm thinking we could turn the bottom portion into a 'safe place' with that lamp, and should the other three also have issue, we can make more than one...sorry yours didn't last well. Glad you have a new use for it. Blessings!
