    The only problem with that on is that it runs on something like 40 volts! I have one, it looks nice but, done not work.

    You pull out the existing bulb and replace it with a low voltage one. That is what I have to do with my Boba LED.

    How did you get it apart? I think I broke mine trying that.

    Well on the red plastic one (Boba version), I just used my Dremel to cut off the shaft below the threaded section and pulled the light out.

    You couldn't do that with the Jango version??

    I don't remember what I tried, just that I broke the thing.

    here's what I used:

    From an electronics store near me in the UK:

    http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?...UK14Q&DOY=15m5

    The specific one is UK14Q, there's a PDF that shows the exact dimensions here:

    http://www.maplin.co.uk/Media/PDFs/UK14.pdf

    Its a 5mm LED Clip, with a convex Bezel

    then a 5mm red LED

    I don't know if they ship to spain, but I'd be happy to forward on if you can't find anything in your area.

    That's a regular LED bulb and a matching holder (just mounted lower by Seeker as he explained in his thread). Its commonly available at electronic kit stores. There are 2 sizes - regular and small. Regular is closer to the real thing.
    I got mine for less than the equivalent of $1. I just don't know how much it will be in other locations.
