    Need parts suggestions or a purchasable finished unit for a security
    light.

    1) plugs into 110VAC 60 Hz
    2) Li ion battery preferred but 12V gel OK.
    3) charge circuit for charge and maintenance
    4) One or two LED lamps. Can get 12V 6W bi-pin lamps with good
    brightness for $19 each. Purchased one and like it.
    5) night/dark enabled
    6) motion sense to turn on.

    I have looked a local HW stores and on line but found no complete
    solution. Electronic part stores have very expensive charge modules
    ($35 for a 12v 300 MA / float wall wart unit)

    I can get a solar charged Li battery with LEDs unit $19. Could add an
    AC adapter/charger and a walk sensor. Just some thoughts.

    Suggestions please.

  5. Get a Emergency light box and add the motion and light sensors.
    most use Lead acid batteries.

    Cheers

    If the OP can't add a wallwart charger to the HF light proposed by
    Jamie how is he going to manage this?

    Artemus explained on 3/17/2013 :
    Had all the HF LED lights in my hands in store.
    most are NiCd - no thinks
    batteries are all behind a dozen or so screws so I could not
    determine ease of modification. Could no determine number of cells.
    the manuals on line are the same as in the box and are of NO use.

    BeeJ laid this down on his screen :
    I would rather work with a 12V system.
