    Neon Voltage?

    Hi got some 12 Inch Dual PC Blue Cathodes and was wondering if they can be wired up to my car, as they are designed for pc i think they run off 5v.



    This kit includes a single inverter and two cathode bulbs , to completely fill your case with light ! Everything you need is included - simply plug the inverter into any free molex (hard drive style) power connection in your PC, flick the switch , and say hello to super bright case lighting !

    The cathodes are inside acrylic tubes to protect them from soft-medium impacts. The tubes are sealed to keep the cathodes in place and cabling neat. Also included are sticky pads to allow mounting of the inverter and two cathodes inside your case.

    Thinking about taking them to a Auto Electrition and asking them to wire it up onto the back shelf.

    I think that you will find they are wired to the 12v side of the molex plug.
    Just cut off the plug & wire the black to ground & the yellow to +12v.
    They should work perfectly.

    BTW the invertor converts 12v Dc to several thousand volts AC.
