I made this over the weekend with the electronics expertise of my dad. It took some time and some on the fly modifications. We used a power supply that was less prone to heat and included a cheap two inch fan for safe measure on the back.

The LEDs we got had some inconsistencies from his, although ordered from the link in the youtube description, turned out slightly shorter and soldered connections at the points where he was making the cuts. It ended up with one less LED strip than his and one of our rows was made of 3" pieces we soldered together.

It is very bright and we added a chargeable battery from a radio controlled airplane he didn't need. The light is still very cool in temp, but I'll be doing some tests with gels for myself to see if I can get a good daylight look out this panel.

All in all I'd say it was a worthy build!

Could you give an explanation or do you know where I can see how to connect that chargeable battery? (:
