Best way to wire four 12V LED light strips to a 24V power source? Answered
It's been over 20 years since I took an electronics class, so I'd be grateful if I could get some help with this. I'm trying to figure out if four ready-made 12V LED light strips can be wired to work with a 24V power source (two 12V 8Ah SLA batteries wired in series) without damaging anything.
I want to add lights to a bike party sound system I made from an Instructable (diagram below). Can I just wire the LED strips in parallel and wire then just wire that in parallel with the mixer? Or is there a more efficient/safer way of doing it?
Here's a pic of the ready-made 12V LED (12 LEDs / Red / 115mm strip length)
