LED Driver Box FAQs

What is an LED driver?

An LED driver is a power regulator that supplies your lights with the ideal voltage and current. Since LED lights are so energy efficient, they need low voltage direct current (DC) electricity. However, most buildings automatically supply high voltage alternating current (AC) energy. The LED driver will convert the AC to DC, which will allow your lights to perform at their best without wasting energy.

Can LED lights work without a driver box?

All LED lights need a driver box to function properly. By regulating the electrical currents, your driver box will keep your lights working optimally while preventing problems such as burnout, overdriving, or excess energy consumption. Operating your LED lights without a driver could also put you at risk of starting a fire.

How long does an LED driver usually last?

Most LED drive boxes will last anywhere from 10,000 to 50,000 hours of continuous use. High-quality products tend to last significantly longer than alternatives that are poorly constructed or made from cheap materials.

Do I need to replace my LED driver box?

To keep your LED lights functioning safely and efficiently, it’s important to look for signs that your driver box needs to be replaced. If you are experiencing any of these problems, then you may need to replace your LED driver:

Uneven light distribution
Dimming or flickering
Some bulbs becoming brighter
Colors changing or fading
