how can i build a flourescent lamp that operates on 12 vdc?i want to build one like i saw on fishing lights .com Answered

anyone know how to go about getting the proper ballast to make it run on 12 volts dc?where i could get one?


Point us to the one you saw?
12V needs stepping-up, you wouldn't rather buy one of these things?


what i want to build is on fishinglights.com,it is a submersible green flourescent light for atrracting fish and shrimp,perhaps just buying one will be my best bet,but i figured it couldnt hurt to ask.thanks for reply

You're probably going to be better off buying one than making one. Economies of scale...


Here's a link to everything you need to know to build what you are wanting.

If you need more google pulled up a lot.

Do you want one for your car?

That's all I can think of.  Anyway, you should be able to get all types of lights at any automotive/parts shop.  The plug for the cars cigarette lighter can be changed to what-ever you want.
