So for reasons that will remain unspecified, I need to be able to power a 100 foot strand of christmas lights and for it to be completely portable.
I was thinking maybe a 6-volt lantern battery. But I have no idea how long that would power the christmas lights or how I'd hook the lights up to the battery.
Thats where you geniuses and your sweet, juicy brains come in. How can I make this happen? Portability (and cost) is key, so I dunno if I'd be able to do a power inverter. Think about the size of a hip pack, for reference.
Dazzle me with your vast, beautiful knowledge!
