    I need to take some pics of my new Hella Black Magic 500's before I retro them. Can I simply run jumper cables to my bench and connect the leads from the Hellas to the jumper cables w/o having to use the relay or any other wiring? They're only going to be on for about 30 seconds. I just need to get a pic of the light output mounted upright and pendant.

    Thanks,

    Johnny

    fuse the line and it should be okay. Even direct shouldnt hurt anything. But fuse just incase something is crossed.
