Powering your LED lights
Too much power to an LED light will burn it out pretty fast. Too little power will not be enough to illuminate it. If you are not sure of the volts required to light an LED start testing it with 3 volts first, then 6 volts, then 9 volts.

Amps: A measure of the AMOUNT of Electricity Available or used.
Volts: A measure of the force of electricity.
Watts = volts times the amps
Watt ever the Amps or Volts on this pole, this cougar has a problem! No one wants to risk the rescue.
10,000 volts or sharp claws-
both are dangerous!

9Volt batteries can cause problems if not stored with care. Both the negative and positive terminals are close together. If both terminals come in contact with metal at the same time the battery can become a fire hazard.
Test: place a piece of steel wool on top of both terminals and watch the sparks fly.
ALWAYS COVER THE TERMINALS WITH TAPE AND STORE SAFELY.
Alternate Power supply
By putting a female solderless connector at each end it is possible to use the 12V DC Transformer when there is power in your outlet and the 9V power when the power is down.
The Transformer produces a consistent flow of power and brighter light.
Have you ever wondered why some batteries don't fit their holders?
#1. Sitting side by side the Duracell is a bit shorter than the Sunbeam. On closer inspection the terminals are not the same either. No wonder people have problems installing them in their holders.
NOTE: Sunbeam is a brand found at the Dollar Store and lasts about the same as some name brands.The sunbeam is taller so you may have trouble in an enclosed battery case. Great for use with a 9V battery strap.
#2 The AA batteries differed too. The two on the left are rechargables which appear to be shorter than the Duracell or Kirkland. Sunbeam is shorter too.
But with these batteries there is a spring on the negative end of battery holders that can allow a variance in length.
The tops of them all are somewhat different too.
