Back pack light question???
« on: Apr 29, 2011, 12:10 PM »
I was in Ikea today when I came across these lights for $29.99. You can change it's color with a push of a button. My question is, it plugs into a wall. How can I get it to run off a battery like a 12v or something.

That seems a bit much, especially if you can get touch lights for much less and they already work on batteries.  Don't know if changing the colors is that big of a deal.  Then again, its not my backpack.

The top one looks like it has a power pack for each light. Check that and see if it is a converter and if so what power is needed to light the bulbs. If those are LED, they need converters to change from AC to DC, so it's just a matter of finding the right battery power to light them up.
