1. An integral LED light fixture comprising:

  • a housing base having a forward housing base portion and a rearward housing base portion, a support at said rearward housing base portion, a forwardly-extending outer wall and a forwardly-extending central portion defining a housing base recess in said housing base;

    a socket base located within the forwardly-extending central portion without extending rearwardly beyond said forwardly-extending outer wall and operatively connected to said rearward housing base portion of said housing base for making electrical connection with an incandescent light socket, said socket base transmitting electrical current with an incoming voltage from the incandescent light socket; and

    a series of electrical components for generating LED illumination operatively connected to said housing base, said series of electrical components including;

    a printed circuit board comprising a set of LED bulbs, and electrical circuitry for transmitting electricity to actuate said set of LED bulbs; and

    electrical conversion components for converting the electrical current received from said socket base to electrical current having the necessary characteristics for actuating said LED bulbs, said electrical conversion components and said printed circuit board having respective rearward-to-forward heights, said respective rearward-to-forward heights cumulatively having a total cumulative height;

    said printed circuit board and said electrical conversion components being nested together to form a total nested depth;

    said total nested height being less than said total cumulative height, and said socket base, said housing base, said printed circuit board and electrical conversion components being fixedly attached to each other; and

    a lens removably attached to said housing base and enclosing said series of electrical components.
