I am too now especially with this peticular product. Being in the construction business it has been difficult getting most home owners to understand the benifits of Led's in the home. A friend of mine that works on the railroad knows that I like trains. The RR upgrades their equipment & he got me a red signal light. I opened it up & there were 135 white led bulbs in there. The specs on the circuit board said I believe 8volts. I hooked a low voltage up to this & thinking it wouldn't work turned it on. The problem I was staring into this thing when it came on & I fell backwards aginst my work table blinded. I couldn't see very well for about 10 minutes. I put the red lens back on & it lights the whole basement up with a high power red light. It's unbelievable the amount of light just using 8 volts.

Impressive. I have a couple of LED battery powered trouble lights and they are much safer and easier to use than the old AC powered ones. The batteries also seem to last and last in them.

I have two "tractor search and rescue" LED flashlights, standard 2 cell with two batteries.  Those things can light up the room like its daylight.  They sip batteries, with 5 times the light it will outlast the dim old lights. 

 

I imagine someday folks will be collecting our containers for dead batteries... I mean old pre-LED flashlights.

I like LED except for the price. I wish I could afford good ones for the house, would really cut the power bill.

I need a set for the tractor, with the low power drain I could run 3 or 4 with the little alternator on the Honda clone engine and not kill the battery.

 

The problem is the price, and finding the right size to fit the opening.

I have several LED flashlights.  I have a couple of rechargeable work lights too.  They are virtually indestructible.

 

At work, they renovated an office.  The overhead florescent lights were replaced with overhead led's.  Very bright.
