its hard to take pics of working lights in daylight, but here are examples of the differences between the warm and cool whites. (Blue is the "cool" white)

and I actually like a combo of both.. but that defeats the point of saving battery power.

I did not remove the old blue ones.. didn't see a reason to. They don't hurt anything there and I can use them as the mood strikes me.

Bill, just saw your post.

The blue domes you see are those. They just came out with the ones with the switch.

The LEDS in them are smaller, and as you can see from the pics above, even two of those (48 leds total) are not as bright as the single fixture with the 24 8mm LEDs.

My meter has a blown fuse in it (Nope, I didn't do it) so I can't measure the current draw right now.

Just got a e-mail from superlumination they said you can order the JUMBO led lights with an on/off switch .
They reported that they produce 70-90 lumens.

I e-mailed them back to see what the price is with the switch .
Thanks GINA
ps. post what the draw is sometime.

I sent an email asking about the current draw -- here's the query and response:

Query
I am interested in your "item #24" aka "24 LED (Large 8mm leds) Ceiling- Utility Lights"

What is the current draw?

Are they available with a built-in switch?

If so, what do they cost with the switch and how do I specify that model in my order?

Thanks!

Answer
Hi-

Those lights do not come with a built-in switch.

We have switches that can be wired in here:

http://autolumination.com/flash.html

Or, any switch can be used.

Those lights draw 0.2 - 0.3 amps at 12 volts.

Thank You

Chris Bacon

Thanks Dana. .3 amps is good.

There are two "Jumbo" fixtures.. there are cool white small ones that are called Jumbo, and they are the smaller bluish ones you see in my pics. They recently added the switch to them as an option.

Go to Radio Hack and pick up a "Mini" single pole, single throw switch.. they are about 4 bucks each (Over priced IMHO) but easy to find there.

Why not just buy these switches when you get your lights for $1.99 [at]?

You would have to ask him, but it's the other switches on the page he is referring to, I think.. at 3 bucks.. and bulky.

There is a fused toggle at the bottom tho. That will work.

Read the thread and ordered the large warm white lights.

Bought switches at the local auto parts store (liked the colors).

Bought the voltage regulators at Radio Shack (Thanks for the tip!)

Made and finished the frame from scraps on hand.

Hangers are key-hole type from hardware store.

Mounted light on 1/8 hardboard, secured on frame with glazier's points.

Soldered and finished.

Total cost - about $23.00 and a couple of hours work per fixture. Satisfaction - Priceless.

Good thread, great ideas.

very nice!

I did the two up front in mine then headed off for a 4 day weekend.. had clouds and rain and thunder... but a very brightly lit trailer with no concern for battery power. It was as bright as these giant stickies that come in here requiring 50a service.

Guess I missed the photos. Where should I look for them?
Thanks,

LEDs are still very sensitive to over voltage.. most older converters can possibly cook them when they go into desulfate mode (Voltage shoots up to +14v or more)

I don't use regulators because I don't use my converter.. I hate them, but that another thread.

I run off my battery only for 12v.
