Hey guys I have a Firepower II game that I just got and want to add some additional LED lights to it. I was going to buy some 6.3 volt strips but really can't find them anywhere. I can find 5 Volt strips which I'm guessing would shine enough light by connecting them to my GI lighting -- would I blow up anything -- would it work ?? any thoughts ?? thanks

That's 6.3 VAC not DC

The LEDs would only light during half of the AC waveform giving them a peak forward voltage of around 3.1V; they may also have a noticeable flicker as they would be off as much as they would be on.

Hey there! Got a moment?
