Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HQ 12V 1.3Ah Universal Sealed Rechargeable Lead Acid Battery (Accessory)
I needed urgently a very compact 12 volt rechargeable battery with sufficient "CLOUT" to power a school student project with a 12 volt led strip lighting system in a table top mini seaside & beach huts scene!
It worked a treat with terrific sustainable "all day illumination" which after several lengthy runs was still going at full illumination after over 72 hours of intermittent display operation!
WONDERFUL, well satisfied, very quick delivery very good value indeed (High street prices for a similar battery I found to be at least twice my AMAZON outlay!!!
So job well done, full marks to this AMAZON UK supplier.
P.S do not forget to check the charge of the battery before first usage , using a stabilised good quality charger.
Read supplied instructions carefully! Adrian Ball.

Hello Adrian, I was wondering how long the battery lasted on your 12v led strip lights before you had to charge it?,... I am doing a similar project to you... your answer would be helpful... thanks

Hi James, as Led's consume only a few milliiamps compared to the hundreds of milliamps consumed in out of date filament bulb lighting chains (i.e. Christmas lights sets) you should find that this particular battery would run CONTINUOUSLY easily for as much as 5 days!!!
In tests I carried out here at home ,my chain ran continuously BRIGHT for 72 hours for little or no change in battery output voltage.
IF you own a little general purpose TESTMETER (you can pick them up on AMAZON websites for as little as £5!) then you can carry out your own test runs and you should find similar results on your overall current consumption in your light chain.
My chain did it's job superbly in our Grand daughters school project and ran three or four days, but it was switched OFF at night (due to school safety regulations!).
However our Grand daughter did not win a prize!, she was abit miffed! Never mind we all thought it was an excellent working display in her project.
Good luck, and kind regards ADRIAN BALL.
PS I HAVE STILL NOT CHARGED THE BATTERY , although not used since a couple of months or so it still lit the light chain this morning just before I sent this reply!!!

Please can you let me know which charger have you used to charge this. And how long you have to charge the battery

Hi James, I have a general purpose hobbyists 0 to 15 volt DC electronically stabilised power supply variable so this can be set to give about +0.4amp DC charging current at around +13.8 to approx. 14.5 volt.You must use a precision stabilised charger. DO NOT try to use domestic car battery chargers! One needs to know quite a lot about the design of cheaper car battery chargers! Most are definitely NOT suitable and could destroy your little battery and in the worst circumstance cause it to EXPLODE! Regards, Adrian
