    I have coated my entire refrigerator in infrared sensitive material, and I plan on lighting it up with 4 Osram IR chips.

    I plan on using a buck puck to drive LEDs. Info on the LEDs is on this page, pretty straight forward

    So seeing as how they are rated at 1 Amp and 1.5 Vf, I'd like to push them to ~800 mA with this adjustable driver.

    I just have a few questions,

    - Should I run the 4 LEDs in series with each other or in parallel?
    - Will the extra 7.5v create enough heat to require a heatsink for the buckpuck?
    - For those who have used them, are the prongs labeled? I see there should be a +/- for input and ground, blue/white for LED anode/cathode and grey/green for controls (pwm for example)

    It's that carpeting you cover your subwoofer boxes with in CARS. ;)
