    Circuit Sketch?

    Hello,

    I am wanting to run 3 lights (magicshine 808's) off of 2 of the standard 8.4v 4400mAh batteries.

    I can fabricate the connector but need a little help in how to wire it. Anyone willing to do a quick sketch of such a 2-battery/3-light connector for me?

    Did I mention that there are +reps involved?



    TIA

    Don't know where do you want to run this setup, but it is pretty straitforward. You need to connect all inputs in parallel and all outputs in parallel. That's it. Of course + and - should be separated (obvious, but just in case )
    For a test (at least) you can play with 2.1x5.5mm DC CCTV connectors (search at eBay or elsewhere).

    Thanks Ledoman

    I knew I wanted to run the batteries in parallel to keep the voltage the same, but wasn't sure if the lights did a weird series thing.
    p.s. thanks for the connector info...

    No problem. You are welcome. There is one thing I need to mention. You might experience some flickering when connecting more than one light in parallel. If this happens I would try to add some hi grade capacitor to the wireing you are going to do. So you solder + and - of the capacitor to the apropriate wires comming out of battery packs. In theory it would be the best to have capacitors as close to the light heads as possible, but it is unpractical.
