Default Air Vent LED's

How do you install LED's in your air vents and what do connect them to for power? Straight to the battery?

I would use a transistor hooked to the headlight switch positive side; but thats just me.

So they would just come on when the headlights are turned on right?

If you did it that way, yes.

You may want to think about putting a switch inline with that so you can turn them on or off when you want. Not be stuck with the only option of when the headlights are on or off.

Run your lights in series and just put a switch inline between your transformer (I'm guessing the lights will run at 5v or lower) and your first light. Then just mount it somewhere factory looking or hidden and you're set!

Why would you use a transformer?
