Hi Gods,

Bath panel lights wired in series and no longer work, how can i test each led light individually? (have been told buy a 12v battery and touch lights to battery).... sounds odd but ok.. :s

I have tried coming out of the driver and connecting each light on their own as if was 1 light and not in a bank of 8 but they just flicker when connected this was, Is this normal? and also why would they be wired in series rather then parallel?

any advice would be much appreciated

TIA

IT'S QUITE LIKELY THAT THE DRIVER IS A CONSTANT CURRENT (VARIABLE VOLTAGE) JOBBY THAT HAS FAILED.

all depends on the voltage required. a 12V battery will generally power 6 LEDs. as your driver will output up to 44V, that eaquates to 20 ore so LEDs in series, 12V will not do it.
