LED flounder light

Just got my first of two led flounder lights put together. Thanks to LaddH for letting me borrow one of his that he made a couple of sundays ago to see if id like it better than my lantern. I DO!!!
Its much brighter, lighter and the underwater light makes the flounder profile stick out like a sore thumb. I know there are many like it but i made mine a little different with a waterproof push button switch and fully integral wiring. Now all i need to do is sand it down, prime it and paint it black. If you guys havent tried floundering "a pie" (on foot), its very fun and peaceful. My dad started taking me when i was about six, gigging with a coleman single mantle red lantern with tin foil on the globe and a clothes hanger with a piece of water hose on it for a handle...i was recently using a coleman northstar but this light blows lanterns out of the water! I used an interstate rechargeable agm emergency light battery for power. I bought enough materials and batteries for two of them. Let me know what you think!

Ill get better pics tomorrow during the day. They are 1000 times better underwater because the light spreads more.

The button looks super bright though, but I guess you won't be looking straight down.

Thumb over it. Its not as bright as it looks. Leds from oznium.com. I found some other plans for a similar light here...

$50 for lights and switch, $50 for the rest. The rechargeable batteries are the way to go.
Those arent underwater, its at work on caliche gas well pad. Underwater makes a world of difference. I built this one at work today, i love my job!
