I doubt if this will ever be duplicated. (UPDATE: I stand corrected) But just in case, here you go. I got married recently, and one of my geek duties for the wedding was to light 75 paper lanterns in the reception tent.

Commercially available solutions advertise a 12 hour life, which is much too short. So I designed something that uses 2 AA batteries to power 3 LEDs.

...it may have been overkill. It's been almost 4 weeks and these things are still going.

Should work a switch into them.

I guess it depends on the implementation. in my case some of the lights were inaccessible after being hung and only needed to be lit for the event. with the super-long battery life it wasn't a big deal to just install them the day before and leave them on overnight

Hey, nice design on the led/battery holders, I would like to do the samething for my sisters wedding but I dont own a 3D printer, how much would you charge to make about forty of them. Thanks Brett. e-mail is [email protected]

Yes I agree with sirmakesalot this is a great design and take out the doubt!!!! And I too am printing it as I speak!!

Take the doubt out of the description because I am printing at least one for my design kit! I am an industrial design student making various projects and could use your thing as an add on to some of my models!

Very nice not overkill, like you said better than what a commercial version could offer you!
