Can these lights be wired to 12v DC?

Postby bosleybeebop » Wed Oct 26, 2016 2:13 pm

Forgive me if this is obvious but my experience has been most led lights run through a driver box out to AC wall plugs. Can I skip the driver and wire it straight to DC?

What have others used in the way of low profile ceiling mounted leds?

Thx

The amazon question section already had this question. The seller answered that they run on more than 12 volts, so no.

I have found that most led lights run from between 9 and 24 volts. Some are as low as 3, but there is a pretty wide range and no way to know beyond looking at the physical transformer or by the manufacturers literature.

There are my rv style led lights available on Amazon.

No they won't work on 12 VDC. You can find lots of 12 VDC LED lights at superbrightleds.com. I got some really nice, very bright puck lights for the underside of my galley hatch there. Super bright and very reasonably priced.
