When it says positive does that mean the ground needs to be positive. I want to use it to stabalise an LED stiplight. Voltage is from batteries that has variable voltage 12 - 14V approx and negative ground.

Yes, this would require a positive ground, unfortunately we do not currently have any negative ground regulators with the same specification to offer as an alternative.

Please (a) add connection diagram (+, - and output) and (b) confirm minimum input potential is +15 V
