Default Thanks to member Bodam! New LED idea

Forum member Bodam introduced an idea that has been pondered but never taken forward.
So here it is!
This is a magnetic based pod (Eco Series), with a car adapter plug in, made portable...we had a little too much with it! I would love any feedback or critiques anyone has thanks in advance

Magnet on dirty paint = scratches galore.

this should work well on our work trucks, they want something portable that they can use on a jobsite. Cant wait to see them in person.

In Texas as of September 1 2013 you don't have to have a front license plate unless you are on a highway. So yes I would rather have my light than my plates!
And as far as the magnet to paint, there Is a thick piece of felt on the bottom, and from my understanding, most applications will he at stationary use

Actually as of September 1, 2013, all vehicles in TX are required to have 2 plates. That law has never changed. In 2011, legislators accidentally removed the punishment side of the law for no front plate, so you could get a ticket but no fine. Now you can get up to $200 fine for no front plate.
