    So how do you plan to power these LEDs? And do you mean a case for the iPhone/iPod Touch or silver backing of the iDevice?

    i plan on taking the back off and removing the silver apple logo and replacing in it with eiter clear or opaque perspex and installing them inside the iphone im thinking about connection the leds to the screen so than when the scrren goes off iphone the leds will turn off as well

    my second idea is connecting 2 coloured leds and having them flash to the beat of the music or ringer or boath

    Just thought I'd point out -- it won't kill -- but it will lower your backlight having one light, and will actually substantially lower it if you do both mods - thats 1 always on light and 2 that flash on and off to music, which takes processing power....
    In the end may reduce use time by like half an hour
