LED Lighting FAQs

Q Can I dim LED lights?

It is possible to dim some LED lights, however, we only guarantee that our lights are dimmable if we specifically state this in the product description.

Q Which wire is positive and which is negative?

If it's not clear which is positive and which is negative try connecting both ways around. You can't damage the lights as they are all protected against reverse polarity.

Q How can I tell how bright an LED light will be?

LED lights cannot be compared directly with traditional incandescent bulbs (which are described as having an outputs in Watts) because they draw so little power in comparison. Their output is normally specified in 'effective lumens' and we have created a guide to allow you to compare this with the outputs of other types of incandescent bulbs.
