Car LED's > Possibilities

Hi there…

I have acquired a hi-intensity brightness LED spot light set for a car....
This set is powered by a cigarette lighter fitting for the car (Live in England)…12V I believe….

I am thinking, can I mod this to go in my PC, and if so what will I need and how easy is it?

Cheers for your help all..

This is what the look like....

Thanks again...

To put it in your PC all you really need to do is chop the cigarette lighter end off and wire it to a drive connector. So you just need some mounting points and say a cheap computer show Y connector to use for the plug.

The fitting will probably have one or two resistors inside to drop the 14V down to something safe for the LEDs. You need to keep this part, otherwise the LEDs will go pop!
