Does Anyone Know How to Make a 12v Lighting System?

I dont have any electric at my field, there are some existing 12v strip lights there but we dont know how old they are and cant see how the wiring is set out so have never used them

If I were to start a new system from scratch does anyone have any tips please?

Try a quick Google search for 12 volt lighting - there are hundreds of results - more than a few from the green brigade.

This is just one that I found - and there are many links to other sites from here:

Try googling/searching some narrowboat/canal forums. Most narrowboats have a 12v system. Boat chandlers will have the equipment and Maplins are pretty useful.

I'd be suprised if Just Me or our Gareth couldn't point you in the right direction. I'm sure that they'll be along shortly.

As if by magic...


Let us have some more details like

how much light you need
what its for (IE for you to see or for egg laying or security)
how long do you want it to work for before you need to manually do some thing
budget
will you mind having to carry a bat to take home to charge
can you get your vehicle near enough to power them from it
