If you burn out the motor or brushes of rhe servomotor, you can use its electronics to turn on/off LED lights.
I knew that in theory, but I tryed this also to make actual test.
I just solder two LEDs on the wires that in servo goes to the motor. With trimmer potentiometer (included in servo electronics) you can even set the point where LEDs go OFF.
Note: this was only a test sample, othervise I would pack electronics in a shrink wrap and solder a tiny plug for connecting LED strip.
