I have a couple of sets of the vintage Owl lights, that are really cool, the only issue with them is running an extension cord to where you want to put them,
here is the plan, buy some waterproof 9 LED light strings, wire them inside the owls and in the 1st owl wire in 3 or 4 9 volt batteries for power, with an off/on switch it the bottom.
this way they would be waterproof, last for ever, (no changing bulbs), and with no need for an extension cord you could just throw them up anywhere and turn them on. just change out the 9 volt batteries when they are dead.

been doing some searching, Duracell makes a small 12 volt battery 21/23 that is a bit smaller than a "C" battery. 12 volts would be better. or for more power rig up a dewalt 12 volt drill battery, that you could just recharge, you could mount it on the bottom of 1 owl.
Ya know, UE... I am inspired to come up with more ways of using LED's around the house as well as the camper applications because you are so clever with the ideas. When it does come time, I hope you won't mind me picking your brains for setup. You have a lot more knowledge of how these work than most do.
You will have to insert your own snark here...I am too tired today....

well curiosity got the best of me, i had an extra 15 LED string of lights however they are red, not white. and a 9 volt battery, they light them up really nice even with only 9 volts, however the blue and green ones you could not even see the light on in one set of my owls, but on the other set they shine just fine through blue and green, different thicknesses maybe.
