    Hi all. Hi all ...

    I need help with this high powered LED im buying, the data sheet is on this site aswel.

    http://uk.farnell.com/ledengin/lz1-0...lue/dp/1678946

    Basicaly could some one please recommend a driver or resistor I need to run this LED, i was going to power it by just using a 12v adaptor.

    I did speak in online chat to a guy from the site he recommended this driver.

    But as you can see the LED is £15 to buy so i want to make sure I get it all right.

    any help would be great guys.

    What do you intend to mount/solder this LED to?
    Also what do you intend to do for heat sinking?
