## How many amps do LED work lights draw?

LED lights by their nature are low voltage but also relatively low current making them lower in power and more efficient that traditional incandescent bulbs and halogen downlights. Generally we are talking about **between 100 to 750 milli-amps** depending on the forward voltage required to turn on the LED.

## How many LED lights can you put on a 20 amp breaker?

You can put up to **40 lights** (based on 50 watt light) on a 20 amp breaker.

## How many LED lights can be on a 15 amp circuit?

Each CFL or LED bulb typically gives the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent bulb while drawing 10 watts or less, which is equivalent to a current draw of 1/12 amp. Thus a 15-amp circuit can safely **control 180 or more fixtures that use** CFL or LED bulbs.

## How many amps does a 36 watt LED light draw?

High Intensity LED Light Bar – 36, 3-Watt LEDs – 8208 Lumen – **9 Amp** Draw (-Flood-Black)

## How is LED amperage calculated?

A simple formula for calculating amps is **to take the watts and divide that by the volts**. So, for instance, if the wattage of the lighting fixture you’re working with is 60 and the volts are 12, divide 60 by 12 and you will get five, which are the amps.

## How many LEDS can you put on a circuit?

You can use as **many branches of 3 leds** as the power supply can power.

## Do LED bulbs use less amps?

You’ll find out why LED lights draw less from your battery while providing the same amount – or even more — light than the old incandescent ones. … When Dave connects incandescent bulbs to an amp meter, they draw up to 1.6 amps, but when LED lights are used, they **only pull about .** **26 amps**.
