Re: Questions RE: Installing Interior 12v LED Light Strips

As long as the input voltage on the light strips is 12V, no reason to do anything but wire them to the lighting circuits. I'm sure you remember that LEDs lights care about the polarity. I've been looking at some gooseneck reading lights that are set up for a 4V input voltage. To use them, I'd have to add a resistor. And I hate the idea of drawing more current and converting it to heat. So I'll keep shopping for 12V gooseneck lights. (yeah - they probably have the same resistor internally, but at least I didn't add it...)
