Can this be done safely without burning up the led's?

I was thinking off Household bulbs that are made up of LED's and thinking what if??

How reliable can they be?

Could be used for direct lighting similer to spot lights.

Anyone done anything similar?

Regard.

pow´&r brik) (n.) Also referred to as a transformer, an element of the external power supply for a notebook and/or laptop computer, used in conjunction with a battery pack. Since notebook computers rely on low-voltage DC, they need a way to convert the AC from a power source into DC that can be safely used by the computer. The power brick takes the AC voltage and converts it to a DC voltage slightly higher than the battery (the slight elevation in voltage ensures that the battery stays fully charged). Batteries normally supply the safe DC voltage to the portable computer, but power bricks are intended for use in conjunction with or instead of a mobile device’s battery. Note Well: Unlike power supplies and voltage regulators for desktop computers, those for portable computers do not conform to any industry standards, so power bricks are not necessarily interchangeable among portable devices.

Okay. Let make this clearer! Remember those 1 watters on clearence from Target and CC and such places?

Say , string up about 5 or 6 and hard wire them to a wallwart (brick, ! or power supply.) and light up what ever?

What do you guys think?

PS. And Thanks TENMMIKE for the Def:

Give it a try - I threw a couple 5mm LED's and a resistor on a wallwart for a little night lighting. Just watch the current - remember power=current times volts.
