Hi Dave,

This also means a couple of 6v torch batteries could power the lights for a few months no cabling or power points required.


If you run off 240 you will need to convert it down anyway. You should be able to calculate how long it will last by multiplying the number of globes by the wattage to get the total wattage. p=vi to calculate how much current needed then decide that by the battery capacity to know how many hours you’ll get.

I would guess a reasonable amount of lights would last at least a hundred hours off a few dolphin torch batteries.
