How to properly power LED Strip Lights using battery for mobile sign? Answered
Hello and thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer me here. I'm clueless here...
So, here is the plan, I have purchased a strip of LED lights (see them here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005EHHLD8/ref=pe_385040_30332190_TE_tr_3p_M3T1_ST1_dp_1) and am attempting to place them on a mobile sign. Imagine a person walking around on the street after dark with a sign that is nice and bright with LED strip lights.
Obviously, these need to be battery operated, and I have seen it done with something like a cell phone battery and charger type thing and would like to duplicate that. I do not know how much power the battery would need, or if resistors would be needed (or even how a resistor works). Can anyone provide more insight for me?
Thank you again!
