Good evening, Adafruit forums. Please have mercy on my first, likely to be very noobey, post.
The situation is this: I'm in charge of lighting up my girlfriend's Quorra (character from TRON Legacy) suit with a lot of LED strip sections. I've followed the Adafruit Learning System's tutorials on these strips (http://learn.adafruit.com/rgb-led-strips/overview
) and I'm using the wiring diagrams and components listed there in my own system. I'm using this diagram specifically: http://learn.adafruit.com/system/assets ... 1353964350
And I'm using the listed beefy 30A MOSFETs and 30 LED/m RGB strips. By my math, I have just over 3A worth of strip to power in total. I'll be powering the system with 8xAAs kept inside this case (http://adafruit.com/products/875
I had intended to wire the drain of each LED colour's MOSFET and +12V to its own strip on some stripboard, and power the three sections of the suit (two arms and the torso/leg) in parallel through those strips.
My question is this: any idea if this particular setup will work? If it makes any difference, I'll be using the LED strips at 50% brightness via my Arduino Micro's PWM pins. Thanks in advance, and I'll post diagrams/doodles/whatever's needed as requested.
