Adapters for Strip Lights: Safety and Tips
The adapters are usually marked with amperes but strip lights are usually classified in watts so you need to convert them to be able to work out which adapter you need. To do this, multiply the number of amps by 12 to give you the power of the adapter in watts. You should choose an adapter that has 10 to 20% more power than you need so you can add other light products, lower the overall working temperature and make it last for longer.
As far as safety is concerned adapters should always be kept well away from water. Make sure you only buy 12V adapters as any other kind could cause damage to your lighting.
By using light fitting adapters in your home you can enjoy the energy saving benefits of LED lighting, saving time and saving money. You also won’t have to replace your LED bulbs as often as traditional bulbs. Depending on how often you use a light, you may never have to change your LED bulbs again while you are living in the same home.
Making the switch to LED lighting will see you decrease your carbon footprint and use contemporary UK LED technology to provide a more optimized lighting configuration.
