Sorry if this has already been mentioned
but i went to the radio shack nearest me, and the guys there were freaking idiots, and apparently know nothing about electronics, or customer service...
i got me a mini red neon lamp, and i want to power it using batteries.
this is the light - 120VAC Neon Lamp Assembly (2-Pack) - RadioShack.com
so i tried hooking it up to a 9 volt, but no go...
does any one here know what i have to use? two AAA's? two AA's? i'm at a complete loss...the lights say that the operating voltage is 120 VAC, and that the firing voltage is 70-80 VAC, and i have NO idea what that means.
any help would be awesomely appreciated
