What would you need to connect it to a 12v supply

Asked by: Danny
You would need a suitable resistor, however it would depend on the total number of LEDs, how they are arranged and any other devices in the circuit as to which resistor would be suitable. If it is just going to be LEDs a useful calculator can be found here to assist with locating the correct resistor; http://www.hebeiltd.com.cn/?p=zz.led.resistor.calculator
