Wanted to put this out there for suggestions.
I have about a dozen LED 15w 1600lm non-dimmable bulbs that I think were from HD. I am looking at the possibility of removing the boards and making a light for my 3x3 area. Here’s what I input on:
1 - Is it even possible to wire the boards up to make a panel?
2 - What would be required? Would I need a driver or would a plug in transformer work?
3 - Should they be hooked up Parallel or Serial?
Here is a picture as to what I am talking about if I am confusing you.
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The reason for this is trying to use as much as I have on hand due to financial restraints. Would love to pick up a couple of SolStrips kits, as they sound great, but definitely out of budget, if I want to keep other supplies on hand. I could also probably get away with putting together some sort of fixture with light sockets, but I want to try to make it a low profile as possible due to space constraints and the damned things are still about $5 a piece, so still have to shell out about $60-$70.
