Lamp Posts and Power
A customer asked, "Do the lamp posts come with a battery pack or is that separate? How many battery packs are needed for 5 lamp posts?"
Our pre-lit lamp posts do not come with a power source, but are compatible with any of the following power sources:
- USB Power Cable
- Power Functions Power Source
- 3AA Battery Pack
- Mini 5V Power Source
To power five lamp posts, you could use any of the above-- the 3AA battery pack and the USB cable are the most popular options. Either of these can power 100 or more lights, so you could use one power source to easily power five lamp posts.
Each lamp post comes with a "Y" adapter which allows up to two posts to be connected to a single power source, but if you wanted to power five lamp posts and they could all be within 24" of each other, you could use our 8-port expansion adapter with standard connectors to power up to eight posts.
Thanks for the question!
