12V LIGHT CONSTRUCTED FROM 240V LEAD LIGHT

Postby Smileandhug » Wed Sep 16, 2009 11:16 am

This is my light for my camper. Pick the Lead Light up from Bunnings for $15, cut the plug off, attached alligator clips. Light bulb is 11W 12V from a light shop for around $16. So ya have a sturdy light with a 5M lead and works well.

Brett ,thats close enough.
Derek , you divide watts by volts to get amps.
