Wiring 40 or 50 LED's to 12V motorcycle battery? Answered
I would like to wire 40 or 50 LED's to run off of a 12V motorcycle battery. Here's what I have:
Red LEDs- 2.2V typ 2.8v max @ 20mA
Motorcycle battery- 12 Volt, 10 Ah, 180 CCA
The plan was to run 8-10 series of 5 LED's in parallel. From what I understand each series would need a resistor but I am not sure if the motorcycle battery puts out enough mA to support the total number of LED's. I am a beginner so I may have this all totally wrong, hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks for the help!
