Hi,
I'm looking for flexible metal cable similar to that used in this product:
http://www.mightybright.com/Book_Lights/79/ProductDetail.html

The cable has a flexible metal sleeve which can be manipulated into whatever shape you want and holds its shape.
Can anyone tell me what this cable is called? I've been searching online for days and I haven't found anything similar Sad

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

I've seen that kind of wire in those flexible USB lights at the "Buck of two" Very Happy

Cheers Eric Wink
The problem is most of those reading lamp only have 20" of cable or so. I need around 40" Rolling Eyes

Maybe use a small two strand wire and a large copper wire and put heat shrink tube over them Very Happy
