How to control single 12V LED using Raspberry's GPIO?
To be more exact, I need to connect 12V LED & push button to Raspberry Pi 3 B+ GPIO in order to control LED (on/off) and read button push events.
I'm gonna use this huge momentary push button that has a 12V LED illumination inside.
I'm building a small arcade-like machine. I am a programmer w/o any experience in soldering. Frankly, this is my first project of this kind.
Please, help me to draw a simple circuit that just works.
As I understand it's easy to connect button, the tricky part is to control LED, right?
I've just noticed that button description contains this line: "push button ... comes complete with 5v bulb ...", so maybe LED is 5v/12v! I don't know if this info will help to simplify the circuit.
