    I did check to make sure the polarity was correct. I had originally tested each of the power supplies for voltage and I have the amperage written on each but I did not think to check if the batteries put out more amps than the power supplies.

    I was tired of changing batteries and having to turn on and off props every night. So I have been wiring every prop to run off power supplies. I have already rewired tea lights and a number of different props but when I got to the wolf I could not get it to work. Most of the props were easy to determine their power needs since I just used the voltage from the batteries. I was a bit surprised to find how many would run on 3 V even if they used 3 1.5 volt batteries. However the wolf has 3 AA...
