Someone Mentioned These From Premium Aquatics (45 Bucks Each + Shipping) They are 1w Cree(ish) LED's in blue. Mounted into a black semi/waterproof box with a normal 12v AC/DC adaptor attached to it.

I went to a highend LFS saw one and then sourced a better solution.

My Solution

This is a 1w LED Wired and Ready. They Come in 1watt and 3 watt Cree Versions. All you have to do is get a 5 dolar old phone charger or head over to radio shack and pickup a AC/DC adaptor. (Powers 5 or 6 LED's)

It gets better here is the SAME LED 1w and 3w Version Encased in a Waterproof Aluminum Housing that acts as a reflector.

They have 3 Different Versions depending on Your Depth and how focused you want the beam. The 008 or 009 Version should work fine. The Premium Aq's versions are the 009 I belive.

I love the possibilities with LED lighting, but the pricing is still way too high, and the quality is still not there.. :fun4:

Hey I was going to pick up 3 of the 3 watt 009 versions. Reading the item description it says power them at 12-14volt DC. My question is when picking up a 12volt DC power supply, there can be a pretty wide gap in the amount of millieamps it puts out. Some cell phone chargers put out 400MA some 700MA or I have seen 12volt Dc power supplys that put out 1000MA . Does it matter how many milleamps as long as it 12volts DC.

I don't belive it matters. They sell a power supply on the site that will power 7 or 8 of the LED's and are easy to wire. They sell them for 15 bucks. I would go that route. It can't hurt to try. The LED's can be run pretty high and the spec sheets shows the maximum and minimum you need to run them at. As long as you stay within the limits you should be good. Post Pics when your done.
