I go over how to get the most out of these all time great deal of a light. I like the way they look too.
All Electrnics website sells those I have seen the led strips also It would be nice to have lights at night that are cheap to run even could put an led in my outside light
I have got a bunch of solar lights that the circuit died in. I can use the solar cells from these to wire them up in series to get a higher charge voltage. they put out about 2.5v at max sunlight. With a load, they put out less then 1V to a .5 volt AA cell.
I got to tell you, If you want to do that, Check out that high voltage circuit that runs CFL bulbs from 1.5 volts. You can use a bunch of them and they make great light and work well of a solar power solution. If you want to use LED's, The ones from the solar lights work great at 3 volts as long as you limit the current. You should be fine if you have a long strip of them. Cost wise, you are better getting a strip of LED's from ebay and running them of 12Vs for a shop application.
I have planned on hacking them and putting a bunch in my workshed put the solar part on the window At night I will have lights in the shop when my power is turned off
