The new super bright 18 LED Folding Pit Light from TrackStar, offers a convenient and compact way to light up your pit table. The light is designed with a single cell Lithium Polymer battery inside (rather than using an external 12V supply from other available makes).
Features include an extruded, anodized aluminum frame with adjustable angles.
Specs: Input: 1s LiPoly 3.7V Battery Lighting: 18 x White Colour (6500K) LEDs Technical: Built-in Discharge Cut Off Power: Built in battery inside the unit 2600Mah 1s LiPoly
Anyone with a bit of skills in electronics could tell us how to mod the circuit board (if it is reasonably feasible) to be able to use the lamp off a 12V DC source ? Of course I would like to keep the option of using the battery. Thanks in advance !
Recently bought this pit light, read somewhere that it should last at least 2 hours, so after fully charging the battery I timed how long it took for the pit light to go out! Was a long wait, after 5 hours and a few minutes the pit light shut down!
This pit light is for sure a good buy, if you can't fix what is broken in 5 hours, stop playing arround a go do something else *-)
I've been looking for this light for a long time. Muchmore Racing sells one for $74. This is a great deal and very bright.

I've uploaded some files for sharing. The 18 LED array is so bright that I couldn't even starring on it. The LED is the square type similar to those used for the Corn LED lights. The entire assembly is more than half a kg. A small sliding switch is provided at the front end of the "Z" to switch on and off of the light. It is a good piece of tool for detail works indeed. Can be double-up as an emergency light since there is built-in over-discharge protection.

Just received mine today, wouldn't work at first... My Accucell 6 said "connection break" when i tried to charge it, took the base apart and found the battery lead unplugged from the circuit board, reattaced it and now it works, very bright! I'll enjoy using this handy light... Overall a good buy.
