    Default Faucet powered LED color light

    Does anyone know where I could get one of those colored led light fixturess that fits onto the spout of your faucet and powers on when you run the water. I'm looking for one that lets me choose the color. Or that comes in red. I found a bunch on Amazon. com but they change color based on the water temperature. I want to choose the color.

    This is a $1.50 mini hydroelectric power generator,


    In theory, you could hack it such that only the red LED is illuminated regardless of the temperature. However, from everything I've read, it's next to impossible to hack without all but destroying it.

    If you can't find a red-only faucet light, I'd consider wiring a regular old red LED into the aerator body (assuming you can live with a pair of small wires).

    I found a red one,


    The design is a little different, but it may work. It appears to slip over, rather than thread to the faucet. Consequently, it will only work with certain style faucets.

    Thanks again. That one may work even better for my purpose. It says it's not available now but I'll watch for it. I've never ordered through Ali Express. Are they reliable?

    The mini hydroelectric generator is a great idea too.

    I'll let others chime in here. I've used AliExpress on a few occasions without incident. I know others who swear by it and prefer it over eBay. You should be able to find the red faucet light from other suppliers.

    Both the Walmart and AliExpress faucet lights contain a mini hydroelectric generator. This is what powers the LED.

    I got that, but were you saying the generator alone was for sale somewhere?
