I take apart old computers for a guy that scraps them out. I took lots
of backlights out of laptops and the HV power supply too. I made some
real neat night fishing lights out of them. With a home made dimmer
circuit added one runs 75ma to 250ma from a 12 battery. Gives lots of
light to catfish with.
From the next reply, it said that you are in Russia, is that so? I
don't know if I could send you a HV supply or not.
Let me know if you need help.
