Build your own solar LED outdoor lighting

We can’t stand those lame stick-in-the-ground solar light thingies. If you really need to light a yard/walkway/patio, you’ve got to build your own! Solar lights are great applications for a remote application, like your back yard. But the ones you buy in stores are so dim they won’t safely light a walkway. You can make your own more powerful solar lights using LEDs. <object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/OyvcD7x01rE?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/OyvcD7x01rE?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>watch the instructional video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyvcD7x01rE&feature=plcp

thanks for this! I’m thinking of putting up some in our country home, but might use incandescent bulbs. There are times when I prefer the yellow, nostalgic cast rather than the austere white of LEDs.
