One day I’ll make some items for a Frankenstein’s laboratory scene.
I saw these lamps on eBay. for about $4 each.
They have an E27 base and are 110V.
A 240V version is also available, but would require too much voltage to light at all.
The idea is to get a nice glow at the lowest possible operating voltage.
This boost converter module was $6.60 on eBay.
The input can be from 10V to 32V. I will probably use 12V.
The output is adjustable from 35V to 60V.
I’ll be running the lamps at 50 – 60V so they have a dull vintage glow.
This way the prop can still be powered with a safe, low voltage.
Here is the lamp running from the boost converter module.
The output voltage was set to a shade under 50V.
This output was maintained with an input voltage as low as
10.5V but I’ll more than likely be using it with a 24V input.
The golden glow should look great in a Halloween environment.
