    DirkNerkle used quite a few of those style of devices. One issue he had was low temperature performance. I think he used a c7 bulb to warm them up.

    Heat does not appear to be an issue -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FK-cYR32zGA

    Thank you for this post . It gave me the idea to search for a dual purpose power supply and sure enough there it is .

    It is not heat that is the problem - it is cold. Specs on the latest link are -20C or only -4F. If you don't expect below zero temps (F) inside the container holding the PS you should be good.

    Where'd you get 'em? I posted about a prop I want to make and was wondering if the 12v nodes would run at 24v...

    The ones I'm testing at 24V now were purchased from DIYLEDEXPRESS in 2018. I think most regulated Pixels today are 7-28V rated, maybe 30V.
    You will need to ask if they are regulated and at what range, if not posted.
