Hello, recently i tried to diy a project i found on youtube. i spend couple of hours to create the schematic so i can give all the information on what i am doing.
i am powering the arduino UNO via a dc jack in case you cant figure it out.
THIS is working PERFECTLY if i am powering the arduino via my laptop usb or connect the 5V Voltage Regulator directly to my scooter’s battery.
My thought behind this is, that i would like the arduino to have power when the daylights are on = when scooter is running. so i would like to avoid having it attached to the battery directly. i googled a bit and saw that UNO has about 45mA. i couldnt measure my battery mA just volts so i cant figure out if it will drain the battery or not.
Plus its more convinient to power the arduino from the daylights; less cables to manage.
The problem is that when arduino is powered by the DC jack, the led strips do weird stuff, blinking etc… not working as indented.
But when i power it via USB (no regulator) or via the battery all works fine.
I have 0 experience with electronics/resistors/OHMS and that sort of other stuff. Any help to the right direction is welcome
