hi, i wonder if making a series of 1/4 watts would lower the overload of the resistors? meaning if the resistor are 1/4 watts max, so can i add more of resistors to increase watts max in a series ??? i got 1/4 resistors and i am trying not to burn the resistor out and i am using 12 volt and it produce 5 watts and the amps is .42!! Any ideas
I'm trying to figure out what watt resistor to get for this hearing aid project. Does anybody know the wattage of a resistor with the description R-US_0204/2V? Thanks.
