12 volt LED strip light with an unregulated battery source
I would like to connect your 12 volt LED strip lights to an unregulated source such as a 14.4 volt or 11.2 volt battery. Would this be permissible?
Unfortunately, our 12 volt LED strip lights have a voltage input limit of 12.0 volts. Exceeding this voltage can result in reliability issues and reduced longevity. Operating the 12 volt LED strip light at voltage input levels below 12.0 volts would not cause any longevity or reliability issues, but will result in lowered light output.
We would recommend using a voltage regulator to ensure a stable 12-volt input to prevent any damage or stability issues.
