Hi all =)

This is just a simple video instructable that I put together this afternoon. This project takes no time at all. As long as you have the correct components handy, then you're going to have no problem finding success when assembling it. This video acts to give you enough information to use variations of the components that I used in order to create your own solar/super capacitor based rainbow LED lamp. While the LED may not look bright in the video, it is just due to the background lighting. I hope that you find this video useful.

It is an extremely simple idea that literally takes about ten minutes to put together if you have the right components handy.

Take care, and thanks for watching.
