Forgive what I'm sure is a very simple question, but I'm hoping for a little guidance for the following question:
I will soon have six of these battery operated strobe lights:
Each takes 4xAA batteries, and I'd like to control them all via a pushbutton attached to an arduino. The batteries need to be remote, so I was planning to run cables from the strobes back to a control box, which will contain the batteries, arduino and button. I'd like to reduce the number of batteries required if possible so am I right in thinking that I can, for instance, use three 12v batteries instead of 24 AAs? I can give the arduino its own 9V source, and will use mosfets to switch the strobes.
Again, sorry if this is a stupidly easy question, but I'm always weary of messing with battery power!
