please help i am trying to create something and its pretty much done but now i need a 12v 10amp battery any safe way? Answered

i am trying to make a simple little circuit to heating coils(salvaged from cigarette lighters from cars) i have it set up so one is negative and one is positive when they touch they heat up but i am unable to get it glowing red hot which for now is good i guess i need to find heat resistant glue and backing so i dont get burned any help would be great

You might look at fiberglass cloth for backing. Is it possible to permenately attach the ends of the coils with a sheet metal screw or rivet? With out pictures that's the best I can think of.

If its good that it doesn't glow red, you already have a working circuit. If you want to switch them BOTH on AND them to glow red, you need a battery that can supply 20A, which any lead-acid battery will do easily.
