Re: 12V DC to 9V DC?

Put two pucks in series for 9 volts...or put 3 in series for 13.5 volts and I bet you can run it off straight battery power.

Therefore you will need to make one puck the 'master' and add resistors in each of the other two 'slave' pucks, by-passing the 'off' position, or put resistors in all three (again, by-passing the 'off' position) and have a separate 'master' switch to provide power to all, allowing any one, two or all three pucks to be lit.

Sounds like Christmas tree lights... when one goes out, they all go out!

Okay I'm getting strange, I think I forgot to eat breakfast and lunch... better go eat some food.
