This hack should work on any corded lamp, and all it takes are the few simple materials below:
• 9-volt battery or 8 AA batteries
• 9-volt battery clip or an 8 AA battery pack
• Wire strippers
• Strand of LED lights
• Soldering iron
• Optional: Velcro and felt to cover the bottom of the lamp
• [in the words of Kelly] Optional: brilliant husband
How well does it work? According to Kelly,
So far, so good! We've run the light for about 8 hours total and it's still going strong. If you'd like your lamp to be on the brighter side, opt for the 8-battery pack, because it offers 12 volts of power. The 9-volt will run slightly dimmer.
