    To all the LED DIY'ers

    I am thinking of purchasing the PAR38 12 X 3w LED spotlight in royal blue.
    So total of 36w

    Do I need a driver for this as I see it has a screw on thingie like our normal house light bulbs.

    If yes, who sells the drivers in South Africa?

    Cool

    i belive it is a normal socket, you have a link to the globe in question. I know @Toolboysa has a par 38 globe in a normal screw in socket (no driver)

    Can you dim them or are they on or off?

    this one is dimmable.

    @Ridwaan I have a PAR38 from Rapid the 12LED (2NW, 2CW, 6RB and 2 UV). Mine use a normal screw in light bulb fitting.
    @Nemos Janitor Mine are dimmable by a triac. Which is the normal dimming dial one sees in house lighting
