hey im not sure if this is meant to be in here.

i should probably ask on a nerdier forum such as atomic or ocau (my old homes)

but i have 2 red ccfl (cold cathode flurescent lights) laying about which i might put in the footwells of my eb, and it runs off 12V from a pc psu. (molex)
i have cut that off cos i custom wired it when it was in my case, and i was wondering if i could run it straight on the 12v battery??


ive got a missile switch i can mount somewhere for it.

just wondering if the amps from the battery would affect it??

i thought the 12v battery has insane amperage but the pc psu doesnt.
would it f**k the inverter?

would it work just plugging it in? or would i need to do anythin else? (its designed to run on psu 12v)

As long as the voltage is right it'll only draw the amount of amps it needs, so your safe.
