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 your length of strip light. Having the correct adapter eliminates issues such as, colour fading, overloading and flickering.
Which 12V LED Power Supply?
The important thing you need to consider when choosing a power supply, 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
