Default Re: Running Lights

I made a battery case out of an old Polaroid camera case. I put a plug on the back of the case so all I have to do is plug in the charger. The case has a battery curoff switch on the front. I ran the charger wires directly to the battery, not through the switch so I can have the battery off and still charge. However, I originally did not fuse the charger circuit...then I went to check the voltage throigh the charger jack...and promptly caused a short (jack is kind of small) and had to replace all of the charger circuit wires as I burned all the insulation off. Now I have it fused with a 3A fuse- I have a 5A on the light supply circuit. Lessons learned.

BTW- I have seen the light you referred to- it's a good project.
