  The Flexible Lamp fixture itself was repurposed from the trash after its original balun burned out. The lamp initially had CFL tubes.

  The LEDs come in a sting of 10 sets of 3 white LEDs assemblies. This was broken up into one set of two, 3 LED assemblies and two sets of 3 LED assemblies.

  A SPDT toggle switch and a diode were added to break up the string into smaller pieces and control the brightness by having only two assemblies on in the LOW light setting or all five assemblies in the HIGH setting.
