Hi there, I'm looking for a rectifier with a 0.7v (or thereabouts) drop to use in series (3 or 4) to dim a dipped car headlight. Would these fit the bill? Thanks Martin

Asked by: Martin J
The drop may be less than that, I would expect around 0.3V @ 12V.

I need to add a 13.8 volt power supply to an existing circuit rated at 10 amp. I wish to stop the power feeding back through the existing power supply by fitting a diode upstream of my connection. Do you supply a suitable unit?

No sorry this product does not support that.
