## 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.
