Super-Bright DIY Portable LED Light Panel

This is a really important lighting project if you want to shoot quality movies or photography on the go. I use LED light strips to make a small portable lighting panel for just a few dollars. Support me on Patreon –

Very Cool Idea, Good Upgrade Options, a Dimmer and Re-chargeable Battery.. you can get a Iphone Very slim Replacement Battery for Very Cheap on Ebay in Battery Replacement Kit.

deakae says:

Great project, great video production.

Lower North says:

I made one similar to this, with a much larger battery and a dimmer control

Having problems with the dimmer though, need one with a higher frequency for video work

Have incorporated a charging port into mine as well, next will be a battery indicator and diffuser panel

Lumen Tech says:

u looks so…lovely

Ebrahim Harris says:

hi there.. excellent work keep it up.. by the way do you have any plan to build a dual colour temperature light panel with dimmer control?

FatBoy Nation says:

I was wondering,what was the dimensions of the Polly peaces that you cut? I want to try to make a light like this, and as well what was the thickness of the Polly as well?

Wow so far your video is the best on youtube

Juani Reppucci says:

Nice, but FYI a single coin cell battery contaminates 600,000 liters of water, you use four so almost TWO AND A HALF MILLION liters of water.

B. Anderson says:

Hi, Great videos! I am going to build this project for extra lighting for my workbench. I am getting into working with electronics and could use some extra light from time to time. However, instead of being powered by batteries, I am going to power it by plugging it into an outlet.  The LED strip (based on the link you provided) have arrived from Amazon.  You mentioned in your video that you could add an additional 4 batteries for extra power for more light; since I am powering my light panel form an outlet source, could I simply add more power?  You have LOTS of great projects and ideas. Thanks for post them!

You are a great Girl……………

gorogoro pisyan says:

Destynick says:

Sanket Sunkad says:

Lahna Amjad says:

Amazing video it’s so helpful

DocGenius1 / Videos says:

You Ms Lady is a genius, Thank you for sharing………Peace

KiLLrFOX916 says:

I really enjoy watching your DIY videos and I think for another version you could also add a frost effect using vinyl onto the acrylic. This way the light will be more soft and diffused to give more even lighting effect in photos. Keep up the great work! 🙂

Andrei Grigore says:

How do you switch the battery connection from series to parallel?

Alex Jeudy says:

Great ideas and videos…Thank You

lee yi ling says:

love all your videos!

mcladrifter says:

I’m curious if this could be powered with a power bank instead of the cells.

Maškov Production says:

what type of battery is best to use for 18w led? i need something rechargable

Louis Robledo says:

this is great will build this, but i will add a voltage dimmer

JustinCase says:

geez is there no way to make an led panel without the use of all these tools? especially soldering.. great video anyway

Omgerday says:

I wish I had a shop like that

mrqthews says:

how about a ‘frosted’ front panel to eliminate the dots of light reflected from some objects.

The Bearli says:

Great! thanks for this project.. I will build the same for Photo shootings!
can you make a second method, like a flashlight?
