Morning all again.
I have managed to sort out the powersupply I need for powering 2/3 Luxeon LEDs.
I have running right now at 730ma (30ma higher than i was expecting, but eh), 2 LED's on a nice sized heatsink.
My problem now, is the 10w resistor I'm using, is cooking!! I was told that a 7w would be good enough for me, so I figured a 10w would be overkill.
Should I be mounting this resistor (standard white ceramic) on the heatsink as well?
SHould I up the wattage even MORE?!
Should I just regulate the current of the powersupply instead of limiting the current, and get rid of the resistor all together?
