Introduction: Patron Led Hanging Patio Lights
After doing some researching and reading on some ideas for lights for my backyard patio I came across this instructable.,..
....well it sparked an idea and I remembered I had access to alot of patron bottles..empty already.
Got a project box from radioshack and ordered a bunch of leds off amazon and a solar panel. Already had a 12v 5ah battery. Each light has a little saying on it which I got from michaels and some twine I got from michaels also. The black chain I got from homedepot. The bottoms were cut off with a really cheap tile saw I got from homedepot which works great!!
I had them solar powered by this...
but after a week or two and only using them 2 or 3 times..my battery is completely dead at about 6 volts... so onto more reading about solar powered systems. Might need to get a better charger with more watt output and charge controller.
