DIY Lighting
 
Didnt want to take the other guy's thread so i started my own.

I was wondering how much voltage should I use for my power supply as my brother has access to Super-bright LED lights. and how much LEDs should I use. I currently am planning upon using Super-bright Whites, Bright blues, and Bright purples.

Like I said, i have access to all colors and brightness, its just the matter of how many volts for the power supply and how much lighting. Hoping to use it for a reef tank. As for cords and soldering and electronics, i have all that.

? i'd say its a 120volt plug in unit. But I think your asking how many watts you need. Correct? That would all depend on how many LED's your going to put on your system.

This will give you an idea of what your looking for. They have the most wide variety of Drivers for LED's.
