    Hello guys,

    I'd like to connect 8 infrared LEDs to a normal car battery (~ 14V). I know the basics of electronics but sadly not enough to do this without messing something up. And this is why I'm here.. Now, about the LEDs.. These are the ones I have -> http://i.imgur.com/lTlr3Vf.jpg (this is what says on them "LED 55B, GE 247".. sadly I lost the paper with all their specs) and I believe this could be the PDF with the specs http://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/53565/FAIRCHILD/LED55B.html .. Is it cheaper to build my own circuit for this (and if so, I'd appreciate if somebody could show me a schematic for it), or is there already something that I could buy pre-made and use for this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Is the battery in a car?

    Yes, I want to connect it to a car battery that is already being used by the car.

    Then you should consider taking this to a different website. We are not allowed to discuss this sort of thing here.

    The owners of All About Circuits has elected not to host discussions of automotive electrical system modifications/enhancements due to safety concerns, the potential of legal ramifications and the possible circumvention of vehicle regulations at the state and federal level.

    This thread is against the AAC forum rules, Chapter 6, as seen here:
