I recently got hold of 2 broken LED torchlights and I had the idea of putting the LED heads together (after I cut them off) in series to make 2 lights for a camping powerbox that I want to make (LEDs are fine, torch body was unusable.)
I am asking for your help, because I am totally new to electronics and just lost in all the calculations involved.
Tried to get forward voltage and LEDs lit up, but nothing registered on my multimeter except the 1 sign (used the diode setting, am I doing something wrong.)
Anyway, here are the specifications. I had and I hope someone can help with some good advice.
- I will power from my 12v battery.
- The LEDs are a cluster of 9 at 0.07w, 4.5v (there are 2 of these.)
Good Guess Souradeep with the cheapo yellow Chinese made multimeter.. Anyway, I am added some new info that you wanted
This the reading I get from attempted forward voltage reading,as you can see the LEDs light up dimly but they are super bright when connected to the batteries
Here is the Specifications.
Thanks in advance... (sorry for the incorrect grammar, or its too long of a post)
