Ok folks, I feel like the MIT grads that couldn't pass the light bulb test right now... looking for some gentle help
I bought a string of old incandescent bulbs at a goodwill store. I can't get an individual bulb to light off a battery, but they work on the string...
I have been wiring one side to the tip and the other to the gold screw. With 25 bulbs on a 120v string, I am assuming 4.8 volts needed? My 7.4v LiPo didn't do it, nor did my 12v battery...ok, I am not hooking things up right...but not sure what else to do. Can I clip a piece off the string and use the bulb holder somehow? I welcome your suggestions .
Ah, flashcubes. I haven't seen that word in ages.I used to use them when clustering BP motors. I went thru a spell where I bought all the flashcubes I could find on Ebay and spent weeks taking them apart. I have a gallon zip lock bag full. I rarely use them aymore.
