LED Snowfall Meteor Light Tubes – eBay/China – Overview



A brief video showing a few of the features of these bargain LED snowfall light tubes…

Shipping is around 2 weeks from order time to the West Coast, since the main port for Chinese shipments is in San Francisco. I assume shipping will be around 3 weeks to the far East coast.

Installing LED Lights in Nerd Cave – #DIYGasm Ep. 2



Welcome to the second episode of #DIYGasm where I show you probably the incorrect way to install 45watt LED shop lamps in any room in your house using the existing light bulb fixture for power so your light switch still works. Feel free to correct every mistake I made down in the comments, how else will I ever learn? Enjoy.

How to make a WATER-cooled LED light (DIY SUN BLASTER 2.0)



In this video we’ll be making an insanely bright water-cooled LED light that looks remarkably similar to sunlight!

Build an LED Light-Shelf



In light of achieving over one-thousand subscribers (thanks everyone!), I thought I’d make another how-to video. In this one, I will show you how to build a wall-hanging light bar that looks quite modern and cool. It’s a super simple build, and should be easy for most people to make.

Making a DIY tubular glass LED filament lamp.



You can now support this channel at https://www.patreon.com/bigclive
I had some LED filaments left over from my big open filament lamp project, so I spontaneously decided to make a tubular LED filament lamp after discovering that test-tubes fit nicely into salvaged lamp bases.
Initially I was tempted to cheat with the absolute minimum number of components by using a single diode instead of a bridge rectifier, using a single current limiting resistor and omitting the capacitors discharge resistor, but then I decided to do it with a full circuit. This was a good approach because the circuitry is visible inside the glass tube and looks good.

4 Inch LED Off Road Driving Light Pair Spot Light Customer Product Review – 1A Auto



1A Auto customer review of 4 inch LED off road driving light. Our lights use matched LEDs for consistent color and brightness across the whole assembly. They also use heavier duty wiring and multiple power circuits to make sure that each LED gets optimal voltage. In the rare case that an LED is damaged or fails, it will not cause the surrounding ones to turn off like the lower quality versions.

Every one of our LED light bars is tested for leaks prior to shipment. The lenses use a one piece molded gasket, as opposed to lower quality units that have cut-to-fit pieces that can separate from each other.
