But why don't you simply make your own. They are so simple. Just requires a soldering iron and some patience.
regulation is the important point. The big difficulty with LED modules, it that every one of them has to be current
regulated. "Cheap" (not neccessarily cheap
in cost) ones use resistors, the better designs use a real McCoy regulator
. This makes an LED module bulky, harder to make and thus expensive. So OK, here is a simple solution when you make your own LED lights
. Back at your switchboard, ensure that the supply line that connects to all your LED lighting
circuits is "common" to all the circuits. Did that make sense?? OK, that common supply rail can now be regulated by an off the shelf regulator
. It doesn't need to be big so it will be cheap
. Just needs to be able to handle all the current required by all the LED lighting
system. This enables you to introduce other lighting circuits to the system by routing them to the common rail. You don't need circuit breakers on any of the circuits as the regulator will most likely be short circuit protected and the aother advantage is hat a vey low voltage is now going to be fed through all your lighting circuits that are supplying any LEDs.
Personaly, I still am not a fan of LED modules. Although to be fair, I am still to view one of these new LED anchor
modules in action. The one beef I really have is the very high number of boats using those LED garden lights that go on and off with the day/night. Those things are almost impossible to see from even close up and most definately look like stars. They have that same blue'ish tinge to them that the stars have. My anchor
light is bright and easily seen and unless The Three Wise Men
are still around, no one should be able to mistake it for a star.
