LEDs need cooling LEDs (in whatever form) convert electricity into light. The revolutionary thing about them is that they are a much more efficient light source then all lights that came before it. Sadly, they still aren’t 100% efficient in converting energy to light. During the conversion, energy is lost and simply said all energy […]

Power Supply Considerations If you want your LEDs to light up, you’re going to need a power supply! These come in lots of shapes and sizes and you need to figure out what you are going to need for your project. Although overkill (in wattage/amperage) mostly isn’t a problem, an power supply that has been […]
