Making a 12v room lamp. Answered
We have a quite a few 6v batteries here at work that we get rid of once their voltage drops below what our equipment is able to use. Normally we recycle them but I was trying to see if there is a better way to get some use out of them on my own. Ultimately, I'd like to try and eliminate the need for the plug in lamp I use to light my bedroom.
I'm far from an electrical genius but I found some low wattage LED bulbs that looked like they might be usable. What I was basically thinking of doing was hooking few of the old batteries together, regulating the output to 12v, and then wire up one of the low wattage bulbs. I also have access to solar panels used to charge the same batteries so getting that added in to the mix would be my next step.
