    Substituting 3 'C Type' Batteries for a single '9V' Battery??

    Yeah oddly on socket on the back of the device is a barrel connector (5.5mm i believe) so the supplied cable is a USB to barrel cable and not the usual USB to micro or USB to USB C My mistake there actually type D batteries, though i guess they wont be that much more.

    Substituting 3 'C Type' Batteries for a single '9V' Battery??

    Substituting 3 'C Type' Batteries for a single '9V' Battery??

    Ok, so my originally question still stands as i want a more premiant solution. I'm not in bind where I don't have any Type C batteries (i can pop to tesco and get some) but using a 9v would work out cheaper and possible last much longer if used with a resistor no???

    Substituting 3 'C Type' Batteries for a single '9V' Battery??

    So I bought a pet food dispenser for our 12 week old puppy but the little WITCH has bitten through the USB cable that powers the unit, luckily she is unharmed but now I'm paranoid she'll do it again!. The unit can also be run from batteries (in the instructions it says if there is a power...

    Odd wiring for outside light.

    So it's correct then, got me a bit confused ?? Does it matter that there is just the 1 earth wire connected? How would you be able to identify which black wire was which if I wasn't able to copy it from the previous light ?

    Odd wiring for outside light.

    I bought a replacement light for the outside light that has been here since I moved in (has been working intermittently for a while, think it's the sensor and stopped working completely a few months ago). The switch for this light it connected to a 3 gang light switch inside near the front door...

    Water Pump Not Turning Off (Drayton System) HELP!!!

    Ok have turned the cylinder stat (dont have a room one) to its lowest setting and the pump still fires up. When you say zone valve are you refering to the Actuator?
