Another great entry in our Gadget Freak Design Contest! Stephen Melvin of Sure Electronics retrofit his DeWalt DC527 area work light with two high-brightness 10W LEDs instead of the 13W CFL it is designed to use. Guesstimating from the photos I’d say he’s getting about 100W worth of light, by incandescent standards, out of the mod.

The contest is heating up, but there’s still room for competition! But the deadline’s coming up fast this Tuesday, July 13, so get cracking!
