Neto Posted November 2, 2009 Share Posted November 2, 2009 Well I am no exception from others using luxdrive LED drivers for their lights fixtures.... I built an 18 led w/4 luxdrive buckpucks fixture for my 10 gallon and its been running for a week now. The buckpucks where the 1 Amps series prewired and with potentiometer. Here is my post with pictures: Visit my post Well now after a week, 2 luxdrive buckpucks have failed. One was running only 4 LEDS and the other one was running 5 LEDS. I am not even putting these at their maximum..... I checked for shorts in my circuit, I did allot of continuity test before starting it and after they got damaged..... Nothing was found. It seems that these drivers are bad and I all ready lost $40.00 not including shipping and I am preparing myself to lose another $40.00 after the other two drivers left die!... That hurts after spending so much time and money in this.... I heard that these overheat and get damaged, but my house was @ 68 degrees all the time and these where not enclosed.... All the connections are soldered also. I think people should avoid buying these because they are failing alot. Link to comment
