I apologize in advance if this question is nontrivially stupid, but I'm not sure how else I would find this out without a theoretical background that I don't posess...
What I want to do is add an LED light to this watch winder.
What I don't know is: is it possible to wire up a small low power device like an LED light so it 'taps into' the existing power supply without screwing up the device itself?
I suspect that if I tried to attach say, an electric lawnmower or a hairdryer to the same power supply, things would go wrong. But would something like an LED be within the tolerance so that it could draw power while the device itself still gets the power that it needs to operate?
Or would I have to resort to hooking it up to a 9v battery and hide the battery as best I can?
- That I've found a way to mount it, etc. - I'm just asking about whether I can power it;
- That we're dealing with only one of the watch-winders (I dont want the fact that they can be plugged into the power base to be a confounding factor, so if that complicates things, assume I'm only using one of them and it's plugged in directly which it can be).
Again, apologies if this is very obvious or stupid to any of you - I legitimately don't know.
