For sell my version of a DIY feeder light.

Fat 50 Ammo Box $21
12v Photocell $19
12v Deep Cycle Lawn Mower Battery $125
12v Landscape light $15
12v Green LED MR16 bulb $10 each, extra included
12v Solar Panel $50
12v Solar Charger Controller $30
3/8" aluminum flexible conduit $15
10' long 2" conduit $15
2 1/2" U-bolts $4 ea
3" hose clamps $1 ea

$285 invested

$150 or best reasonable offer, add it up and you'll see you can't build it for what I am asking, this is ready to go, all you need is a T-post and it has been very maintenance free for me.

I think the beauty of it is the ability to move it quickly to a new location. I have multiple T-post around the farm and moved it a couple of times thru out the summer.

Super Start Heavy Duty AGM Deep Cycle Battery

Photocell

LED Bulbs

Landscape Light

Solar Panel

Solar Charger Controller

I put the photocell behind the handle for the ammo box to protect it from squirrels and what not. 1 extra led bulb included that will store nicely inside the ammo can and replacement takes about 20 seconds tops. I will also include a 7/16" wrench too.

Mounted mine on 2" conduit so it can slipped over a T-Post pretty much anywhere you want. It also makes removing or moving very easy. I also drilled some 3/16" plate to use inside the ammo can to reinforce it and a 1/4" piece to shim the box out away from the conduit so the lid will close and it is sealed up with silicone making it weather and varmint proof.



















After being on all night and charging just to about 2pm, here is the battery voltage:
