I'm trying to make some LED clothing.
I'm planning on buying some LED strips, which require a 12V power supply. I plan on buying some battery packs for the power source. To link the power source to the lights, I plan to use these USB ends that I happen to own that look like this:
I took this out of a mobile phone charger power bank type thing. I then plan to plug a 1-4 USB input hub into the USB so I can power multiple separate things. I own this one and plan on using one that came with rock back about a decade ago.
Then because I own so many micro USB cables, I want to plug the USB end into the hub, cut off the micro-USB end, and solder the wires onto the LED strips
Is my logic sound? I've never really done anything like this before. I've heard that USB hubs might convert the 12V to 5V. Is there other wiring would make more sense for what I'm doing? The main thing I need is for one battery to go to about four devices. I couldn't really figure this out.
