Make your own high-efficiency LED reading lamp where the entire array, including all 8 LEDs and 4 resistors draws a grand total of 1 watt per hour! This is what you would require:
From allelectronics.com (www.allelectronics.com)
White Ultra Bright 5mm LEDs x 8 (I went ahead and ordered 100 for other projects around the house since they were so cheap) Category # LED-121
�, 270 ohm resistor (I ordered 10,000 to use when I build the LED lights for my house to run off of; no really I ordered that many!) Category # 291-270
10 packs of 75 foot long rolls of 22 gauge solid core wire (no really, I did buy that much).
On to tools.
