Converting a battery light to a more powerful source?
    #4608272 - 09/01/05 03:03 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I've brought a 4V battery striplight today that uses 4x AA batteries for my stealth terranium setup so I don't have visible wires trailing outside the box. The only problem is that I don't want to have to change the batteries every day, so would it be possible to change the wiring so that it runs on a more powerful electricity source? Whatever source I use it will need to fit inside the terranium (small aquarium sized)

If I can't do this roughly how many hours will it give of good light for? I realize I could just test it myself but I haven't had a chance to yet so if someone could give me a prediction that would be useful

i tried something like this a while back... i didn't think it was worth it. i got from 6-10 hours of light off the batteries before i had to change them... batteries are way too expensive... there should be soem way to hook it up to a bigger battery, but those are expensive as well... good luck to ya

If it is wireless you want then you can go for 4 larger size rechargeable batteries like ones for radios.
Rechargeables are very good these days get high power 2400mAH
