3Watt LED Recessed Ceiling Downlight - 12 Volt Question Answered
I'm new to the world of LEDs, but have recently completed a DYI using Cree XR-E as eaves lighting outside my steel building. Comtemplating doing the same on my personal residence and was considering the 3W 3 LED ceiling downlight ac85-265 under the soffits of my home. These can be found in great abundance on EBAY for as low at $3.99 per unit (China made http://www.ebay.com/itm/Warm-White-3W-3LED-Recessed-Ceiling-Downlight-ac85-265V-Bulb-Lamp-wall-lamp-/110941027707?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D4640763913095912456%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D110941027707%26 ).
My question is this:
All the units I've looked at have attached LED resistors. However, I only want to use a 12 Volt power supply (meanwell) placing all units in series. What do I do with the resistors attached to the fixtures (LEDs)? Can I remove the LED resistors and attach 12 volt power supply directly to the 3 W fixture?
Elementary question from an elementary low voltage guy.
thanks for your responses in advance.
