    OK, I beleive you, I guess I would find that out as I move the stick up back and forth to find the ideal spot to stick. Most likely when I need the light the battery will already be dead.

    Yep. Wire it once and it is there forever (unless your mercury switch craps out too).

Your lights are brilliant in more ways than one, but I do like beemers location better and better yet I think it should be moved forward to allow it to shine down better. I think I will look for a battery powered LED stick on for the amount of time I would use the frunk in the dark. Thanks for the great ideas.

    Same here, plenty of light and out of the way.

    BTW, I have found a single light in the lid to be fine. No need to see under your stuff and the direct light can be blinding at night vs. indirect light from above.

    What the frelling??? [I couldn't help my scifi roots ]
    +10, and what Beemerphile said. I am contemplating a similar lighting option for the frunk. Once its packed with stuff, lighting placed near the sidewalls or at the base is practically moot, so yeah, this is the deal that woudl work for me. Might even help me locate the ignition keyhole a tad easier

    The LED is very thin and durable. I have tried loading it with helmet and stuff, no problem. Not sure what Beemerphile used for the light on the lid. If it is directional or adjustable LED it could be bulky and when your frunk is loaded, it might not be able to close properly. I like the idea though where you can light from the top the only thing is your stuff might be overcast by your own shadow.
