By chance, I came across my childhood night light. Plugged it in and low and behold, 30+ years old, but it still works but the bulb is very dim. I decided a fun little project would be to replace bulb appropriately. It's a very simple light, just an opaque thick blue plastic dinosaur that is illuminated from behind with a bulb wired directly to plug. I have experience with some soldering and arduino work but have very little working knowledge of electricity in regards to voltage, watts, amperage and how they all play together.
The plug of the night light had a black plastic cap with specifications stating 1/3w - 125v (pictured). The actual assembly (pictured) has what I believe to be a 30k resistor with a 5% tolerance judging from the bands (orange, black, orange, gold) and a calculator website (can't post the link as already have two links in this post which is the max for less than 10 rep).
I went to Lowe's and figured it best to go with the lowest wattage I could find - a small 12v 10w halogen. I also picked up a 120v 2w LED but the housing is too big so that won't work regardless. And after reading up more about all of this that 12v halogen bulb won't do in a household plug either, correct?
Long story short, what's a good small bulb and resistor to solder to the plug to make this functional again? I suspect maybe a 1w LED bulb? Would that still be in an appropriate range for the current 30k resistor in place?
Thanks for any help and sorry I know this is pretty simple stuff I just don't want to set my house on fire.
