GazzaS Posted September 12, 2021 Share Posted September 12, 2021 HI all... At the last model show I bought a 1991 molds Klingon Battlecruiser and I want to rig it with lights. I'm looking at powering about 14-20 lights of either 3mm or 5mm size. I want to take it to next year's show, so it needs to have enough power to run 3 days straight on batteries. Because once you give them your kit, you can't touch it until after the judging. And... tbh, it would look cool on display with the lights on at home without having to put new batteries in it every day. Anyway... I don't know anything about it. I know I'll need resistors of some sort, but I've read you can't do that until you know your power source. So if anyone could recommend a battery holder and a voltage that will go with it... I'd be grateful. I don't know whether 3 D-cells would last longer than 9 AA's... But I can make a pretty thick base in which to store the battery holder. Thanks for your thoughts and recommendations. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
