It is cool, but it seems a little excessive. Were 5 resistors really needed? One well placed one at the beginning of the circuit would have done (by my calculations an 82 Ohm resistor would have done the trick), not to mention it doesn't needed to be grounded. But then again he can shut his off. smile.gif

All you have to do is just take the rocker switch out of the equation. On page 6 it shows a diagram of how to wire it to the rocker switch. The black wire is where the rocker switch goes, so you can just wire the black wire to the power source.

I can't see the picture on the aol page but
This is how you install 1 resistor for 5 or 8 lights . Just put a resistor netween the red wire.

there the point...
like the pics he posted...
these LED are in series... so the divide the power source egally for each LED I think... right???
so they are less bright no???
(except if you plug them in the 12V and its some low voltage LED biggrin.gif )

5V is red wire
12V is yellow wire

Hey that's mine tongue.gif . I had a resistor (forget ohm, less than 50) after the red wire coming out of the top of the pic, and then I had the ground and power hooked up to a breakaway connector and then 5v/GND.
