12V LED to Battery Power? Answered
I'm just getting my own cab company started in my medium sized town, and to begin I'll be using my personal vehicle - thus, I'm using items I can remove so I don't get harrassed on my days off, such as magnetic decals and a magnetic top light.
My question is this: Is there a way to convert a 12V, 96 LED light over to battery power? The toppers use a direct cable to a car charger port, but I hate having that cord just hanging out in my cab. It is tacky and unprofessional - at the same time, I very much do not want to punch holes in the top of my car and wire it to my dome light.
I have found several rechargeable, compact 12V batteries online, but I've no idea how I'd hook them up. I'm smart enough to know that I can't just wire it directly to the device - the battery would last minutes at most. I think I'd need some kind of transformer, perhaps?
And here's the battery I would use:
Lead Acid Type: General Purpose
Chemistry: Lead Acid
Lead Acid Design: AGM
Product Category: Sealed Lead Acid
Terminal Type: WL, Wire Leads
Weight: 0.8 lbs
Length: 3.78 in
Width: 0.98 in
