Hello everyone, I am trying to do some research for a maker project. I want to take a cheap old lantern and turn it in to a battery powered LED lantern. The overall idea is to use a number of 5mm leds in a radial pattern inside the lantern, which will throw light in all directions. Imagine four leds in four vertical rows arranged 90 degrees apart. I want it to be battery powered and also have a dimmer switch instead of a regular on/off. Any ideas on how to set this kind of thing up? They are pretty small lamps so more than likely one would have a AAA pack and the other a AA. Thanks in advance.
