LED current restriction is critical for a properly operating lighting setup. Because of the way LEDs work, one can expect to use larger than normal resistors in combination withÊkeeping the current power low enough for safe functionality. Without the proper size resistor, LED bulbs will essential draw too much power and burn out far sooner than their normal lifespan, running up costs unnecessarily.
Energy efficient LED power supplies save money, period. If you’ve got a traditional light bulb, it will last around 80 days continuously used, with a maximum of about 90. Meanwhile, an LED light can stand nearly 12 years of continuous use. That’s quite a difference in magnitude!
