You'll need a PSU for them as well. But you could use the same one you use for the mount.

Hmmmm, I wouldn't use the same one, as you can get lots of interference form PWM dew controllers, and this can affect the mount.. :)

You can buy one from Amazon, I just took one from myself this week.

Search for "240v Mains To 12V DC Cigarette Lighter Voltage Converter Power Adapter 10A SB12". It's 12.72 quid.
