I have very limited knowledge of electric theory and circuitry, as I was a Computer Science major and only dabbled in it as a hobby, but I'm working on a Halloween prop and haven't done anything with electronics in a while and need some advice on one of the components in the circuit.
What I'm designing is a Skull Staff that will have LEDs in the eye sockets, and I want to have a toggle switch on the staff to turn them on and off.
So far, I figured I would use a 9V battery and have two green LEDs in series. I was going to use 330 ohms of resistance, but I only have 220-ohm and 150-ohm resistors, so I figured I would use those in series to get 370 ohms.
I've been looking on Amazon (not the best source, but I have Prime, so free 2-day shipping) for toggle switches I could use, but most switches I see are rated 125 V / 6 A, or 12/24 V and 30 A.
Can a lower voltage power source be used on a component rated at a higher voltage and amperage?
Also, can anyone recommend a specific toggle switch I could use? Preferably small. I need to embed it in a PVC pipe that's 1" in diameter.
