I like that! Nice and bright. Do they stay facing lense or rattle around in housing due to size?

Looks nice an bright there. How is it with the lens on?

I too would be curious about how the LEDs move around with all that space there. I'd be tempted to pour in some resin or some such to hold them solidly in place.

......I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.

the LED plate is so light that cables itselfs holds it in place. Otherwise, I found a rubber tube, which I will use as a spacer, with little bit a super glue.
Pictures to follow.

Looks good. To hold it in place I would consider hot glue over super glue. Hot glue will hold well and even absorb some vibrations. I too wonder just how bright they are with a lense on.

I am just curious what the current draw would be on those high power LED's?
I would think they draw a decent amount of current, but I could be wrong.

Do you have specs or a part number for that?

I make an LEd board (in my signature) that is plug and play and also draws significantly less current than a stock incandescent bulb without generating much heat.

I am just curious how efficient they are.

its good idea about, but rubber hose absorb enough vibration, so super glue should be enough.
