LED Strip Light Power Supplies/Transformers
A suitable LED power supply is an essential part of your LED strip light installation. It is important that you have the correct rated 12v power supply to run the length of strip light to avoid issues such as colour fading, overloading, flickering etc.
Which 12V LED Power Supply?
The main thing you need to consider is the power output you require from the 12v power supply. The rating of the power supply will vary on each installation.
To calculate the required 12v adapter for your project you simply multiply the wattage per metre by the number of metres of strip you will be running. For example, our 3528 strip light uses 4.8W per metre, meaning you would need a 24W 12v adapter to run a full 5 metre reel.
Example calculation: 4.8 watt x 5 metres = 24 watt
12v Power Adapters
Although the primary use of our adapters is to power our LED strip lights, we find many customers purchasing them for other uses such as, laptops, etc. If you have any item which requires a 12v power source, then our 12v adapters can also be an ideal choice.
