Energy Source for LEDs: How to Pick the Right Power Supply?
Function The right LED power supplies (LED drivers) ensure that the LEDs function and perform at their best. The correct power also enhances LEDs’ durability and longevity. Wattage Calculate how many watts a LED consumes. Power consumption = Wattage/ft * ft. Recommend power supply = power consumption * 1.2. For example, you have 10 feet of LED strip lights that 3W/ft. The power consumption of the strip lights is 36W (3W/ft * 12 feet). A recommended power supply is 43.2W (36W
