While Frann and I were in Alpine Wednesday I caught her looking at the LED lights in AutoZone while we were picking up parts. I'd been thinking about checking into LEDs made for automotive use, but that seems to have expanded a lot since I last looked at them well over a year ago. Anyway she decided not to buy any, but I spied one set of two that was left so decided to try them. Price for a 2 pack was $19.99 which I figured wasn't bad at all if they put out decent light. (They do!)
These are running off of a single battery in this trailer, but they pull such a small amount of wattage that they could be burned 24/7 with no problem with the little solar I have hooked up to that battery. For that matter when I get two more lights that wouldn't be a problem either and probably the same could be said even if I ran 8 lights off of that battery.
Off to Seattle - Early morning flight to head up to meet online friends. Lots going on but I decided I need to get away to get some perspective.
