So, what would happen if you used a 1500w cob LED with a reflector and lens meant for a smaller light?

I turned on the small LED on a lithium battery "8 volt 12000 mAh" without any resistance, so the aluminum panel heated up quickly and the LED emitted white smoke. I disconnected the battery quickly so that the LED would not burn. What is the solution to the cause of the smoke emission and the high temperature? Is it the high amperage ?? Knowing that the small LED works at 8 volts 15 mA.

Hi, is it possible to run a single 10mm 12v diode from a 12v led rgb strip, as in can I just solder the wires from the diode on to the strip without the need for any resistors? Thanks

when you said that 10w led was 30% efficient and it only produces 7w of light you said it makes 7w of heat? dont you mean it leaves 3w as heat?
Kaffeetasse94 Uukausi sitten
12:31 While this is a cool tutorial, PLEASE don't recommend using such high power LEDs with quite a lot of stray light to be used as bike lights. If such a thing comes into your sight at night, while you are using maybe a good ol' 10W bulb or a small LED light yourself, you're pretty much screwed as you can't see anything. Please only use lights with a sharp stray pattern at the top, so it doesn't blind anyone more than 20m away or so. Otherwhise, well done, always enjoying your videos :)

I think that worth mentioning is fact that the lower current going trough LED the longer life span, and higher efficiency. BIgclive talked about it in his Dubai lamp videos

But what about the CRI (color rendering index) of the ordinary LED strip? It may be far from good...
Eric Wesson
Eric Wesson 2 kuukautta sitten
One important fact about LED design: The efficiency of LEDs drops as the current rises, and as efficiency drops, so does longevity - both in terms of degradation and failure. The designer should weigh the cost per LED and driver against the desired power efficiency, but usually more importantly, the desire to maintain output over time. Good cooling also helps reduce degradation. Big Clive did a nice teardown of Dubai-mandated light bulbs, which are purposefully overbuilt so as to guarantee both good efficiency and longevity. The light bulb companies hate them because they will practically never be replaced.

As an artist I find it really hard to learn new knowledge or processes without understanding them first, so when I was trying to learn to replace the lightbulb in my drawing light box with LEDs I found it hard to follow along with the tutorials. Thankyou for this! You have helped me understand much more :)

Looking for recommendations: I want to do a custom headlight for a motorbike with LEDs, what power would you use? 5W LEDs? They will be fed from the 12V battery of the motorbike. I wanted to make a pattern of a few LEDs and 3d print the light casing. All just for the sake of learning. Thanks in advance!

Great video, and thanks for making this @DIYperks. However and although a bright LED is a lot a fun for cyclists, because of the powerful directional nature of the LED semiconductor, LED headlights for cyclists are a complete menace to both motorists as well as pedestrians, especially when they flash. I've noticed that when driving (I also cycle, and think it is important always to have some form of lighting on a bike after dark for reasons of safety), there is very much a tendency to keep focussing on the bright light of a cyclist rather than paying attention to the actual road, or what may be in it. I really wish more cyclists would consider this more when choosing lights for their bikes, as we all hate drivers who have the same power on their headlights. So why should cyclists be an exception to this rule?

A cool video would be a how to add more leds to a light fixture that you want to output more light such as a 4ft strip for a shop or a garage Light as well as different materials that are good for casting a smooth light rather than a clear lens, if you’re interested an want more info on my idea let me know, we can email or chat some way and I can explain more in-depth

Question if someone doesn’t mind. for cree led chips like the xhp70.2 chip i want to combine a few of these with a voltage regulator but i can’t seem to find information on how these are wired when you have multiple chips. How do you wire Say 3 of these chips? In series or parallel? Also if each chip input is 6 volts and all 3 chips are wired in series does that mean it triples the input voltage to 18 volts as well? Or all in parallel & voltage stays the same at 6v? Thank you!

If you find the topic interesting, maybe you could look into a way to turn on and off a flashlight using a walkie-talkie (because a walkie talkie has a longer range than a remote, which is a readily available solution)... The application would be to turn on and off - at night - a beacon on the shore from a boat (on a remote lake, where there is nobody around). Or to turn on and off a beacon in the woods to find a place in the dark. Of course, it would have to be weatherproof and capable of working in low temperatures... Something similar to the airport illumination, at nontowered airports, that is controlled by the pilots using radio transmit button (click seven times in quick succession, and suddenly the entire airfield lights up)

What if I have a salvaged led from an old broken flashlight? I have tested it and it turns on at full brightness at 5V, on the LED itself there is only the power rating (0.3-0.5w) so I calculated the current required with a 5V power source (0,06-0,1 A) but is there a way to ensure the current doesn't exceed these values without buying electronic components? (I have some resistors, capacitors etc, also salvaged from older PCBs) I wanted to avoid buying a voltage regulator as it would defeat the purpose of using salvaged components 🤦🏻‍♂️
