    Hi all,quick question. A tiler friend of mine is installing some recessed 12v led lights in a bathroom(some sort of inbuilt shelf) they are IP67 decking lights from screwfix. They are the type that screw into the 10 way connector. He was struggling to get the cables where he wanted,so he's cut the ends off...... Yes i know.... My question,can these be connected into a 12v 12w LED driver (constant voltage). I think the max wattage with all 10 connected is 1.8w, there will only be 6 connected. I hope ive explained this clearly!

    Tell him to stick to tiling, to answer your question as long as it’s the same rating as the previous driver it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Why not cut the connector off the wire from the transformer you have and just connect all seven cores together.
    You would just need two 8 way lever action connectors!

    However a 12V constant voltage driver appears to be correct. 12W is probably overkill , but I think they are the cheapest drivers available.
