12 2.4V lights in parallel, how do I wire it to a wall wart? Answered
I have twelve 2.4V flashlight bulbs in some lovely ceramic fixtures that I have wired in parallel with quite a bit of 26 gauge solid wire (6" between each bulb and about 7' to the power supply). Despite them wanting 2.4Vs, 3Vs supplied with 2C batteries makes them only dim. I want to hook them up to a wall wart but I have had no success. 5V and 3V wall warts do nothing.
I tried two others that worked for a while then burned out:
INPUT: 120V ~ 60Hz 11w
OUTPUT: 7.5VDC ===900mA
CLASS 2 TRANSFORMER
MODEL NO: AD-091A
INPUT: 120V AC 60Hz 15w
OUTPUT: DC 9V 1Amp
I just got rejected from a juried show because it died as the jurors were looking at it.
