Here's a 5 LED bar to illuminate your eTap2hws from Poundland.
Cut the plug off,pull the waggly chrome tube off the light itself and the wires will pull up the tube.
It is a 5 volt device so a resistor will be required or run 2 of them in series.

You would glue it underneath the hangover at the front of the Eccamatic as did David Martin when he did his light.
It would require a resistor to run one directly from the incoming 12volt supply,
But you could wire 2 in series to run it without.

Thanks Ecca,

Being Hopeless At Electronics,as I am, I 'll just try Using it as a Stand alone ,USB plugin.
With a USB extension Cable.
It's Another Great Idea from You.
Cheers
