Questions about: led

This symptom is impossible without silicon electronics being involved in the delivery of power. Passive wires and windings are not capable of causing this. Common problems are common, and my first take is usually correct - a series connected old-styl
Some are. You can also get transformers designed to mount into a 1/2” knockout in a junction box. The transformer proper sits outside the box
Some LED's just won't dim, or dim well. If it didn't say dimmable on the package, it probably isn't. G9's are typically 120v, so they shouldn't need a driver unless you bought something that is low voltage (12 or 24v)
I've recently installed smart (ZigBee) LED bulbs in my kitchen. These lights are on a dimmer switch, and even when I have the dimmer all the way up, the bulbs flicker when their internal dimming is set to anything other than 100% brightness. I was to
I don't know if it's really useful to compare a 120V LED bulb to the stuff you can cobble together from radio shack. First of all the commercial bulbs include a significant amount of circuitry to adjust the voltage, compensate for dimmers, etc. Most

I originally posted this in the LED forum, but perhaps this is better suited here as I am asking about handling current and not overloading a power supply. I posted previously (in the LED forum) about driving LED strips (5050 60 led/ M) from an Ardui
No. Using one source with good CRI is better than combining several poor CRIs. RGB leds are the most exaggerated example: when set to appear white, color rendition is HIDEOUS
Recently I purchased 10 meters of non water proofed 3285 RGB LED strip. Its resistors and LEDs are soldered on flimsy flex which may tear. What can I do to make it strong? I'm planning to stick it on duct tape but I couldn't get the tape of same with
This is common with older security sensors. (The sensor needs a small amount of power to function. To avoid wiring a neutral wire, they are wired in series with the bulbs, and power themselves by leaking a small amount of current through the bulbs -
