  • High powered led

    Hi was wondering if anyone knows if i could use a high power led(3 watt ones) behind maybe an acrylic rod for a drl or even with the headlights being on for a long period of time reliably without it overheating and what not. And would it be safe to leave the resisitor on the outside of the headlight just exposed? Or what do you guys reccomend?

    If it is a true 3W LED, it will need heatsinking.
    Resistor???

      it would also need a constant current led driver. resistors aren't a reliable method for regulating high power led's.
