Wired LED Strips w/9v batteries & switch, but batteries are hot & draining... I know i did something wrong but what?
I am building a 3dimensional box with LED strips on the verticals to light the inside. The strips are a foot long, and have 12 LEDs. I asked for instructions when I bought the parts (this is my first project of this nature!) and did as described, I think... 4 9-volt batteries and a push button switch later, the lights go on, but then the batteries get very very hot... and when I turn the switch off, it's slow to come back on again.
