Powering 12v LED strips from a 12v battery? Answered
My situation is this, theres this old farm building i want to do up and make into a chill out room, but the place is not connect the any type of power supply, or if it was im not gonna try and fix it. i just want to get some lights in the place to make it look good, nothing major just a strip of leds running along the floor lighting the walls.
If i bought a simple 12v led strip and a 12v battery box ( the ones that support AA) how long would that last for?
i need it to work for at least 3-5 hours. if this is impossible would a 12v solar panel be better ?
something like this
i could just connect the croc clicks (or cut them down and solder) them straight onto the led strip ?
if both these are bad ideas im open for suggestions
also would i be able to have a controllable LED strip to be able to run off these two types of power ?
(and just a random add on question, if i wanted to power some speakers without it connecting to the mains how would i?)
Thanks for any help or suggests and reading :) !
