    Hi

    I am trying to make a light fixture with an LED bulb and rechargeable battery so that it can sit on table without any cords.

    What LED volt light will work with

    3.7V 750 mAh battery (see picture) or

    4.8V rechargeable battery (see picture)

    I am only finding LED strips and bulbs that are 12Volt and the batteries that will work with those LED are too bulky for my fixture.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    a LED requires approx 2V. when on a 12V supply, you will have 6 in series. if you use a 3.7V or a 4.8V battery, you should try 2 individual LEDs in series. with the 4.8V, a small resistor ( experiment) or a diode ( drops 0.6V) may also be needed.

    Buy an EM bulkead for 15-20 quid and scavenge the parts to build your unit, should last three hours between charges.
