Materials: Ribba LED picture light (201.807.26), 9v battery, snap connector, solder, soldering gun
Description: Love the high end look of the RIBBA LED picture light, but hate the look of the wires dangling underneath to the power outlet.
This hack allows you to have the functioning light, without seeing those ugly wires.
Simply splice and solder the snap connector to the two wires and connect the 9 volt battery.
The battery and wires can easily concealed behind the picture.
I left the existing converter and connector in tact in case I ever wanted it to be plugged back in again. But it can easily be cut away, and have the wires shortened.
