It takes about 2 hours to put together one of these, it requires an LED string of 16 lights, a fedora hat, batteries and battery holders a little resistor and a lot of patience to make it work. No, there are no robots that can come up with one of these hats, they must be made by hand.|
After all that, you wonder why I charge $40 for one of them. 2 hours translate into $20 for the person working on it, another $18 are spent on the items needed to put them together. That leaves me with $2 profit on each hat and that is debatable because I still need the box to ship it in, solder, shrink sleeving, equipment, etc. Well, when this catches up I will increase the price. The batteries on these hats will last 24 hours, probably longer, I just tested them. It takes 3 AAA batteries.
When I started making these hats I put batteries on all of them, bad choice. The interaction between the aluminum in the batteries and the stainless steel in the battery holders spring, makes the batteries to start producing a powdery substance that damages the batteries as well as the holders. The batteries will be installed the same day I ship them, that way I know everything is working as expected Please make sure to remove them when you are done using them. A Qtip dipped in wet baking soda will help clean clear all the damage most of the time.
The size of these hats is 58cm, or 23" or in Amazon size chart, size 7 which is a Large but many have different ways to make them smaller. Some have a sweat band that is elastic, you don't have to do anything to those, they will coform to your head size. Some have a string on the sweat band which you can tie to make the hat smaller. Others which have only the sweat band, you can put light cardboard strips between the sweat band and the hat. That will make them smaller
