6v dc flourescent lamp from 12v source. Answered
I have a left over Coleman dual florescent bulb set up from an old lantern that has several problems. The lights work and I want to hard wire it into our camper to run on our 12v dc back up. The current lamp setup is 2 6v, 6 watt bulbs. I know I can run them in series to accommodate for the extra voltage but do I need to worry about amperage? Do I need a resistor and if so, what wattage? Am I missing something else important? Thanks.
