Every week we compile the most asked questions about LED lighting from customers or people visiting the website. Here is this week's; Q: Do LEDs really cure baldness? A: Yes, the more you buy, the more your hair will grow...* *This was, of course, an April fools prank. As great as our bulbs are, unfortunately they don't grow back hair. See the full story here Q: What size of transformer do I need for my strip lights? A: For the 60 small chip size, calculate 5 watts per metre. For 120 small chips, 10 watts per metre, For 60 large chips, calculate 15 watts per metre. We suggest adding another 20% to avoid a potential overload. Eg 5 metres of 60 small chips needs a transformer of a 30W LED transfomer Q: Can I dim my strip lighting? A: Yes. With a dimmable transformer. However, for RGB strip lighting this is not necessary, as this can be dimmed via the controller. Q: Please explain the B15, B22, E14 and E27 A: These are the end caps on the bulbs.
