I've just bought a bunch of led drivers (12VDC), but they're giving out between 24-32VDC. I'm assuming their faulty. However, testing my old halogen drivers (12VAC), the voltage their outputting on a dimmer (fully on) is only 7VAC. My multimeter seems fine - just getting a bit confused as...
So I have read a few posts on fitting down lights into celotex or equivalent and I have the same issue but with my own property, and my question is this. If I am going to install some LED downlights into a bathroom where 2/3 rds of the ceiling has no space due to celotex...can I extend...

Anyone using these? Looking for something to use up ladders in loft spaces/ceiling voids. Came off site another driver down yesterday must have fallen out my pocket in the void. Never been a fan off this type of tool as I think they'd 'round off' after a while but I use wera drivers and they are...
I am gradually replacing filament & halogen bulbs with LED versions. Whilst some LED lamps work okay with standard 12V transformers, the transformers don't like low current devices, resulting in flickering. Since the idea is to save money and energy, I don't really want to outlay large sums of...
