How to make string lights battery powered Answered
I have a specific project that I am going to work on (and hopefully successfully!) For this project, I need to take a traditional string of lights, using SPT wire and E12 bases. I will include a picture so you know what I am talking about.
I have looked for exactly what I need already in a battery operated format but I have not yet been able to find it. In total I will need to power 110 G50 led bulbs. The bulbs are .37 watts and .008 amps each. I am fine with splitting these into different strings of whatever length would be needed to make this work. I will show you a finished picture of what I am trying to do as well.
You can see that the project is a light bulb wreath. In it's current state, it is designed to be plugged in and uses traditional bulbs. These will be replaced by led bulbs.
I am assuming that I should be able to snip the plug and wire this to a battery pack in order to power the bulbs. My question is how many batteries would be needed and of what size.
Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Thank you!
