I had this set of VisionX car LEDs sitting around and didn't think i'd ever use them so i had an idea! They are blue you know what that means! So i set out looking for an ac adapter to use to get it working. I went to car toys and asked them what voltage i'd need and they guy said "don't do it, they will light up once and then catch on fire". I was like ok thanks bye. Figuring the guy was mentally challenged and didn't understand what i was talking about i went store hoppin' looking for a cheap adapter. I finally stumbled upon one at sears for under 8 dollars. It had voltage settings from 1.5 - 12 and seemed like it would serve my purpose so i purchased it. I then got home and chopped off the adapter plugs at the end of the ac unit and did the same with the LED. I then wired the LED cords matching the white stripe to white stripe hoping it was that simple. The ac unit also had a polarity switch on it but i had no idea what setting to put it on so i left it be. I then plugged it in and gradually increased the voltage until i had light! I landed on 6v and it seems as bright as when its in the car. Now hopefully i wont cause any dmg here, maybe Evil66 can chime in and lemme know
Anyway here are some pics of what i did!
And finally an updated FTS
You can see Kermy in his lair at the bottom of the bridge, he spends all day there. He still eats like a pig! If you wish to cross that bridge you have to pay him the toll!
I love how my zoos light up under the LEDs!.
Also i seem to have some algae in the lower right front corner that is slowly spreading it's really dark green. My snails don't touch it and neither did my emerald green crab(currently banished to fuge). What will eat it? hermits? I have 3 nassarius, 3 ceriths, 1 astrea, 1 margarita.
