I have a couple older threads but the photo links are all down. I just put up a photobucket just for the pup so now I can pull photos back in. I thought I'd just put up a new thread with the bulk of my experience. First I swapped out the ceiling fixtures with really cheap LED's off of amazon. they're kinda blue but I don't care. Then I needed lighting for my outdoor kitchen area and made a 30"strip light for it. I've been very happy with this and found that it even fit perfectly the snap loops on my ceiling for door storage right over the inside stove. Some epoxy, aluminum channel, a strip of LED's (led wholesalers on Amazon), wire and an acrylic half round sanded for difusion (tap plastics here in Sea). Decided a short strip of 3 might do the step light...works perfect if I don't put up the canopy it works on the riser, I tagged the wire into the step light so it's shares the switch. Wire connectors make it so I can run at different locations. I have the one on the step light switch and one behind the inside stove I've used this set up for a year now with no issues nor regrets. This week while set up in the front yard I had the opportunity to run the lights (all of them) for 7 hours straight without the solar hooked up. After resting the battery it showed no loss of voltage.
