So I have a AC to DC power supply that I put into the barrel jack of my arduino uno.
It is operating at 12V 5A(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008FKDK2M?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00)
The circuit does work,however the arduino itself gets very hot really quickly.
Is there a way to the the DC end of the power supply but bring the voltage down to maybe 8 volts? I need the amps because this is an LED Strip project.
