What LED drive do I need to power a 8x10 Watt LED in serie? Answered
I am building a 8x10 Watt 12v LED strip for my father in law with eyesight issue (an "ambitious" project considering my poor knowledge of the subject ;) ). Attached an image of the project. I though it was simple but I am now totally confused about how I have to power it, the more I read the less I understand.
8*10 = 80 Watt = 80/12 = 6.6A
So do I just need a 240AC to 12DC 7A driver or? But 7A seem pretty high for just 8 LED, somewhere I must be wrong, or not.
My LED have the following spec.
Forward Voltage (VF): DC 9-12V;
Forward current (IF): 1050MA;
