Can I wire an LED directly to an AC DC power supply? Answered
This is my first time posting on Instructables.com so please forgive my noobness!
Here is my issue:
I have an idea of a really nice lamp to make for my girlfriend using a single 8W High-powered LED (http://shop.rabtron.co.za/catalog/high-power-white-p-7492.html) powered with a 12V 500mA AC DC Adapter (http://shop.rabtron.co.za/catalog/adaptor-500ma-fixed-p-6289.html)
First off, is this possible? If not, why not and what is the correct way to go about it?
Secondly, will this LED be bright enough for a desk lamp?
Thanks all! Happy instructing!
