## How many amps do LED lights use?

The manufacturer says that the shop lights draw about 0.3amps. 6 times in a day. Round up to 2 is 3 Amps, which is only 1.8 Amps. It is obvious that you are well within the capacity of a 20amp breaker.

## How many amps does a 50 watt LED light use?

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

## How many LED lights can you put on a 15-amp breaker?

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 60 watt LED bulb pull?

A 60 Watts bulb draws 0.54 Amps to operate. A 80 Watts bulb draws 0.72 Amps to operate.

## 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 many amps does a 300w LED light use?

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

## 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 LED can lights do I need?

Measure your room to see how many fixtures you will need. A common rule of thumb is that you use one recessed light for every 4 to 6 square feet of ceiling space. Doing so provides even, overall illumination.
