Consider LED strips from Wired Communications, but do NOT use one of 
their power supplies, which are likely to be noisy. Instead, use a 
vintage linear wall wart in the range of 12V -- they are rather tolerant 
of voltage, and will, to some extent, self-regulate. The five of their 
strips that light my shack draw a combined 1.2A from the shack 13V 
battery system. They exhibit at Pacificon and Visalia, which is how I 
found them.


They also sell some inline switches that you can use if you don't have 
another easy way to switch them.
