## How many LED lights can go 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 50 watt LED light draw?

A 50 watt bulb should pull about **4 Amps** from the transformer secondary.

## 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 should be on a circuit?

The **limit is 12**, unless you are installing devices that have a known load. In the case of a LED light which is hardwired in, or a smoke alarm, you can put as many of these devices on the circuit providing you don’t exceed the 80% load.

## How many amps does a 60 watt LED use?

The same amount of light can be provided by a 60- watt incandescent bulb while drawing 10 watt or less, which is equivalent to a current draw of **12 Amp**.

## Do LED bulbs draw less current?

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 amps does a 300w LED light use?

120 Volts x **2.5 Amps** = 300 watts (same thing)

## How many amps does a 12V LED strip use?

In electrical terms, we now know that at 12V, this LED strip will draw about 24 Watts per reel (5 meters), or about **2.0 Amps**.

## How much power does a 12V LED light use?

With 12V systems, the lower voltage means more current must be supplied to compensate. For example, a 120V LED system will pull 1 Amp in a 120 Watt system, while a 12V LED system will need to pull **10 Amps** to power the same 120 Watt system.
