Can I plug the UV-A LED Strip into the Vessel or Cigarette Lighter?
I am making a UV 365 charge box for my boat and would like to plug your 1 meter UV led strip either to my 12 volts directly or the cigarette lighter. How do I do that?
As the 12V battery within your vessel will likely have more than enough power to utilize the 365nm realUV™ LED Strip Lights through a direct-wired connection with a product such as our Male DC Barrel Jack Plug Adapter, there is a chance that some cigarette lighter adapter models could have hardware-defined output limitations that are lower than 12V.
Based on my review of some products available online, there do appear to be several listings that provide low-voltage protection for the products utilizing the ports. We might recommend selecting a similar product that can ensure sufficient and stable power for the LED product.
For more technical details regarding the realUV™ LED Strip Lights, I have included a link to the product sheet below.
