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!
This is because it uses a high quality LED from Yuji which as a high colour rendering index (CRI). Since its completion this project has been used to light every single one of my videos! It’s just that good!

I made this video for fun and to show you how to put some LED’s in to your tail lights. In my case the lights were already broken so i didn’t really care too much about breaking them more.

Make a 1000w equiv. LED flashlight – aka DIY Sun-Blaster!



Here’s how to make a phenomenally bright 1000w eqiv. LED flashlight!
Here’s the LED we’ll be using: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575117832&toolid=10001&campid=5337657473&customid=&icep_item=161473769064&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg
It’s designed to be operated with just one hand, with easy control of brightness, and can be powered by either batteries or an AC adapter.

Can be built for around £25 if you get the CPU cooler for cheap.

CHEAP and EASY LED aquarium light HOW TO TUTORIAL



Get the ultimate DIY book: http://thekingofdiy.com

LED LIGHT
Length: 16 feet
LED quantity: 300
Type: waterproof
Parts: +24Key Remote+12V Power Supply
Sold on Amazon and Ebay. A simple search will help you find it.

Another cheap and easy aquarium light: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAYYKYfvtX0

stronger DIY led build: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rLFh3Q_FEA

Watch the aquariums in this video get built: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WwLGQVVnbQ

These are not a practical choice for a planted aquarium. They are no where near as strong as what would be needed. I mention their ideal use in the video and also mention they would not be useful on a planted tank or reef tank.

Each LED is not even 1 watt. they are closer to 0.10 watts.

A planted tank needs around 30 watts per square foot of tank.

EXAMPLE: So for an 4 foot long 55 gallon planted aquarium (4 square feet) we need 120 watts of LED lighing power.

Even if we buy the 60 LED/meter light strip, that would only be around 8 watts of power.

MEANING you will need to buy 15 of these strips to MAYBE match what a good LED light fixture can do. (15 strips = $345)

You are better off buying a proper planted tank LED light or building the more powerful LED system i have shown in a previous video.
