How to run a mini halogen light from the mains? Answered
I am working on a project and need to run a mini (35mm) halogen globe from the mains. I live in Australia and our mains from off 24v.
If I try and run the halogen it works ok but soon heats-up a lot. I'm assuming that I need a transformer to reduce the voltage or amperage but cant find anything on the net! I want to run the lamp that I am building direct from the AC socket. Does anyone have any solutions? I have also looked at 12v LED ones as well and thought that this might be the best path to go down.
