Default 40ct Cigar Caddy Mod

I got tired of having to use a flashlight or nothing at all in low light situations. Here is the mod I did to correct the situation. The cost was $11 at home depot. Its 4 LED lights that run on 3 AAA batteries. This thing is bright as heck.

Thats really cool!!! You just cut the foam with a razor? Did you need to do anything else to affix it to the lid?

3M double sided tape. That way I can remove it if I need to replace batteries.

I have one in mine, too. Just like the one in the Halliburton in the WTS thread.
I stole the idea from Dball.

Awesome set up Scott. I would love to get a Halliburton Case, but the budget wont allow it right now.

Me too, brother. How I missed that one is beyond me.
I really don't need it at all, I have 6 or 7 travel humis already. One I haven't used and another is still in the box, lol.
I'm going to pimp out a Pelican Storm for out here in the shop. That way it can get dirty and beat up and won't matter.
I need to go find another light like the one you have or the one I have already. The one I have was in our pantry until I put a light in. Weeze got it somewhere, I have no idea where. Probably Lowes or Target.
I like it because it's just got two contacts you bridge with your finger, it's incredibly bright, and the angle adjust any way you want it. The thing is just plain cool.

Do you have to turn it on and off manually? If so, it would probably have been cheaper to just get an LED flashlight for 99 cents at any gas station and placed it inside the case.

Love the creativity tho. Looks awesome.

I was doing the flashlight thing and was getting tired of it. This works allot better. And yes, I have to turn in on manually.

I bet Scott can figure out how to rig this so it turns on when you open it

Brilliant idea! I would think sticky hook and loop (Velcro) would work as good as the double sided tape. Might last longer, too.
