Hello, I was looking into the legality of installing an led light strip on our robot. This led strip would serve as a nonfunctional decorative light illuminating the bottom side of our robot as a sort of underglow. I was looking through older threads and I could find that these are legal but people haven’t found a legal way to power them. What would be a legal way to power 9v led strips and could the backup battery be used to power the leds since it is a legal power source on the robot?
I believe that it is illegal to power it with a 9 volt battery, however it is legal to power it off of a port on the cortex. We have a set of blue led lights that we plug into an extra motor port to power them with enough voltage.
