Hi everyone!

I need some helps from you guys :)

I have a LED light for aquarium. The LED light is fine, but the Power adapter has broken. I wanted to buy a new power adapter, however, the original adapter only mentioned 12W instead of ie. 12V 1A, 12v 2A... So, It's hard for me to buy a new power adapter.

Is it possible to find out what power adapter should I buy? I have attached some image of my LED lights.

Thanks in advanced!

Your LEDs have "24V" etched into the board, so that may be what you need. But a good picture of the old power supply with any writing on it would help.

Hi @bertus ,@dendad ,@Dodgydave !

Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, I lost the label that stick on the power adapter 2 months ago. But I guess it should be 12v... I have just removed the power adapter's cover. I noticed there's a text on the board, 12V/1A... is this the spec of this power adapter??? and I also don't know why they put a double-side tape behind the board and it burns....no wonder the adapter is hot... (facepalm)

Thanks guys!

#To add on:

Since the LED light is 12W... And the power adapter's board got mentioned 12V / 1A....

The calculation would be: 12V x 1A = 12W

So, The power supply that I need to buy is 12V/1A , right?

Will it solve the power adapter heating problem if I buy 12V/2A?

Thanks Guys!
