    Sunrise Alarm Clock

    I was wondering if you could help me ‘translate’ your 5V ‘Sunrise Alarm Clock’ into a 12V setup? My goal is to make an LED strip I have (with 45 LED’s 12V) ‘fade in’ in somewhere between 10-20 minutes, like yours.This is what I have on hand, based on your list:-IRF510 MOSFET (effect: 100V-5.6A-43W) - should be fine for 12V?-1 Mohm Resistor (effect: 1 Mohm / 1W) - Would this go with a 12V supply?-4 X 100 ohm Resistor - didn't get them since resistors are built into LED strip.-10 kohm Potentiometer (Variable Resistor) - Would this go with a 12V supply?-1000 µF Capacitor (effect: 1000uF / 10V) - I couldn’t find any capacitors with 12V, would this 10V work? If not, could I use it together with an extra capacitator I have, with 2200&micr...

(I’m guessing no, but I’d love to hear your suggestion).I’ve read all the comments, looking for answers, and I’m impressed how helpful you’ve been to everyone, hope you wont mind answering a few more questions!Thank you
