Well my friends challenged me to build a case light brighter than his pimpy ( pathetic) cold cathode. The result?
Take a small blue project box, pack it with 48 ultrabright blue leds and marvel at the brightness! It hurts to look at directly. Pics of the light in operation tomorrow when we do comparisions at my friends house
Only slight problem...it draws 0.96 amps and the resistors inside get hot enough to melt glue gun glue. But, with the addition of a few holes in the base and a cpu fan, its running fine at around 27C.
Woah is it bright...!
