Upon assembly, this kit lights up 9 LEDs in a pre-programmed pattern. The OWLet 9 is designed for portability, with an included battery pack to allow the kit to be carried anywhere. The kit is energy efficient due to it’s use of LEDs as the only source of light. LEDs are great since they use very low power but can be extremely bright! To increase the versatility of your new kit, you may extend the LEDs up to 20 feet (extra cable not included).

The OWLet 9 has been developed so that you can easily integrate it into another project upon assembly if desired. Use it to decorate your home, add it to a costume, add LEDs into an artwork, or any other project you have in mind!
