Just finished my proof of concept vertically adjustable 3 base lamp holder /two gang power center. The idea is hang one every square foot over your canopy and adjust to the optimum distance. and each one can plug into the next so no powerstrip mess.
Whadda Ya think?

Dude.... Just.... Dude!.... Lmfao. That's awesome man. I need a dozen. And a few dozen credit hours in electrical engineering.

My lack of expertise has had me thinking of using a $50 set of string lighting from BLowes with twelve 9w bulbs, set into an old 'turtle shell' aluminum hid reflector I've had laying around.

@Argo, so what did you think of this experiment. Are you still using the off the shelf LED?
