I wonder if you could add a bracket on the bottom of the LED panel so you could angle it upward. I'm imagining putting the tote on the floor next to your work and then angling the light up. I have the M18 2144-20 job light and that's a great light to carry around while working, I like the idea of combining that functionality with a toolbox. Cool idea!

Very cool mod! 

How will you be attaching the M18 battery?  For some robotics and prototyping projects I've 3D printer battery mounts.  I've also taken the red cap that is used for 12V or USB charging and modified those.

Gets very hot. Need good heat sink and venting holes or plexiglass will warp
