Max wattage light bulb on 12 volt system?


fishtrap2

Question

Is there a max light bulb wattage you can run on a 12 volt system? I checked for juice at the receptical, but the bulb I put in won't light up. Only thing I can think of is to try a lower wattage bulb. Any tips?

- that is assuming you have a decent battery. P (watts) = V (12V) x I (amps).
If your battery's Amp*hour rating is too small, or if it's discharged too far, to deliver I (the juice), the bulb's not going to glow brightly.
Walleye's right, given a good power-source, any 12V bulb should be OK.

I've got the most powerfull deep-cell battery that Interstate makes, and it is new. The old bulb worked, then burnt out. I replaced it with in days and it did not work, so I tried a different bulb, no luck... I hate electricty!

Maybe I'm not using the right bulb. The fixture is a standard chain pull type. Tests ok with the test lamp. Do they make 12volt bulbs that are the same size as standard house bulbs? I didn,t pay much attention to the bulb that I took out, I looked like a standard bulb to me. Thanks for the help guys.

FT2,

Look at the end of the bulb to make sure it is a 12 volt bulb. It will be clearly labeled. They do make 12 volt incandescent bulbs that look exactly like 120 volt bulds you use in your house. The 12 volt bulbs are made for use in RV's etc.

A 12 volt battery will not light up a 120 volt bulb.

Good luck.

Have you checked the socket / fixture w/ a test lamp? Also check ALL your connections.
Make sure you have a good ground too.

Am willing to bet you will find something loose or possibly burnt out (like a fuse)out somewhere. 12V power is pretty simple.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.

      e-commerce applications always do wonders for any business so your idea is very good, someone here in this forum should be able to recommend you some good company that can help you develop the application, remember to ask them to review the application before launching it to the market, so that it does not come out with errors, if it has errors you will lose many users, good luck with your business!

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend
