My current project is a green lantern minigun prop. I 3d printed it already, im just working on the electrical end of things. I have a 12v drill motor that im using to spin the barrels. also in that circuit is a DC5-36V 400W Mosfet trigger switchboard, and a 16A 7.2V-24V drill trigger. The battery pack is 11.1V 5000mAh.
Seems fairly straight forward that it should be able to handle it. 12V all the way.
I also wanted to add LEDs to it. I have the led strip soldered to the 5v arduino with a voltage regulator( i think the term is regulator) to get it to step down from 12V to the 5V output thats necessary. Theres a 12V toggle switch thats in line to control power on / off of the lights and control the rest of the chain of stuff that should plug into the battery..
Both the LED chain of parts and the Drill chain are plugged into a XT90 splitter, using 10 guage wire, that should plug directly into the battery previously mentioned.
This is my first attempted actual electrical project. So my question is, did I do it right? or am I missing something? will the splitter actually send 12V to both sides? do I need to calculate something since its like having 2 circuits in 1? Am I going to blow it up or did I do it right?
