How to hook up a 12-24v system to a battery pack

  1. Jun 18, 2015 #1
    I'm working on a very similar issue to the one shown below


    I've found some batteries that should do the job. i need to keep them fairly small, and the length of charge doesn't matter too much as long as it's not seconds...

    i was just wondering how to figure out what the best amps for the job would be.

    That will depend on the thing you want to power. The required current will then determine which power source is suitable.

    The devil is in the detail. What do you mean "similar"?

    Got a URL for the LEDs you are using?
    How long do you want them to run off the battery before recharging?
