Your 12 volt LED trip will produce fewer photons buy will not hurt the lights.

There will also be no injury to the adapting device if it is a direct output current.

Wise electronic people test start using a lower volt input to avoidamage...

No, it won't be as bright, but it should work OK, provided your adapter can deliver enought current and not get too warm.
