I have a 12” long LED accent light I bought on clearance a few years back. Had no idea what to use it for but couldn’t pass up the deal. Well, now I want to use it as the lighting for my wall replicator.
I could plug it into my standard US 120V outlet (reads a little lover with the voltmeter), but I would love to power it via batteries if I could. Anyone know how to convert a 120V plug-in light strip to battery power? Is it as simple as cutting off the plug and attaching to some strong batteries and accepting the lower light output? Or will the LEDs require full spec’ed voltage to operate at all? Or is there just no feasible way to do it?
