The driver I listed above is constant voltage and if I am right I actually need constant current driver. I found a 30W CC driver on Ebay (https://goo.gl/Jiig10) but the output states it is DC 20 - 36V. Will this driver do the job without blowing out the led?Is there a better place to buy reliable drivers than Ebay?
I took the protective cover off and found the + and - poles. They can also be seen in the pic.
Hi Dipankar,This is my first project. I have a 30w led I would like to power from a wall outlet with as few components as possible. I found an led driver made by Introcircuit with an output "DC 12v, 2.5a, 30w". It has 110 power outlet plug coming out of one end of the driver and a red (+)and black (-) wire coming out of the other end. Do I need anything else for this to work?The led (pic attached) I have doesn't have a (+) or (-) indicator on either connector. Does it matter which connector I solder the wires to? Thank you for your help!
GUIDE TO LED PROJECTS
This is my first led project. I have a 30w led I want to power with a 12v 200w power supply that I have but can buy a different power can supply if need be. Ideally I would like to have a dimmer on it. I want to mount the led on something that is easy to handle similar to a flashlight if possible . any advice is greatly appreciated.
