Designer Emulation Kits

The Designer Emulation Kits (DEK's) by Mark McKenna are a sincere homage to some of the greatest modern designers.

A typical 9 volt cell will power a DEK for well over 160 hours. It is normal for the light to be quite bright when first plugged in, and get progressively dimmer as the battery weakens.
The DEK’s use an LED (Light Emitting Diode) to turn the battery’s energy into visible light. Under normal conditions, it will last about 50,000 hours, or over five and a half years of continuous operation. Naturally, you will go through quite a few batteries in that time.
