I've been looking for a hog light to make or buy for a while but didn't want to break the bank doing it. So after lots of research this is my 1st go at it. What do you think? Comments, questions, input? This first version is just has a toggle switch unit. I will either adapt this one to a daylight/dusk or remote control version later. More pics to come.

It's been running since midnight last night continuous. I'm trying to test the battery life. It's still running strong this
Morning at 11:00 am. I will do an outside test again tonight to compare performance to last night.

The light has been running 36 hours straight and there is no change to the brightness. I have a solar panel for it but haven't installed it. I wonder how long this light will go on a single charge?

Looks good. Let us know if you add a daylight/dusk sensor and how it works.

cheers Every one is on a budget. Got cheap walmart solar lights, cheap scope, cheap lazer,, cheap bullets. Works great, camnt complain. Haven't had no problems with hog's terring up de place . Was worried whin they switched it ta 4 deer county. Got some good pic's of deer early part of deer season. As pappy once said: would rather be hunting than working, but a wise person realizes by working can aford ta hunt. Seeing fewer hog's & deer hunting should be good for next year.. Still got all my tags, from last several years. rofl the lowfer, huntsolo Edit: eeks333 said theirs problem with security for THF site , dang Gov. spying on me again. flag
