This range of Indoor 12v DC LED drivers from Havit are designed for use with LED lighting. They are distinctly different from regular 12v Garden Lighting Transformers because they deliver a regulated, constant voltage. Without these, the expected life of your LED globes will be reduced.
- IP Rating: IP20 (all sizes)
- Flex & Plug included
Like 12v Transformers, the way to calculate which one you'll need is by adding the total wattage of the globes in your system. That number needs to be less than the wattage rating of the driver you'll need.
LED Lighting is an excellent low-energy, low-cost alternative to regular 12v garden lighting with Halogen Globes. The LED globes are more expensive but due to their low wattage, the size of the cable required is much smaller and the transformer won't need to be nearly as big either which means you save money. When choosing between LED and Halogen lighting, it is important to note that the light given off by LED globes is more of a hue or glow than a intense shine, it creates a unique effect.

Can I just use electrical tape on my cable joins?
Being exposed to the weather, water damage will occur any where water can get in. Electrical tape isn’t quite water tight & over time water will creep into the circuit & create havoc & void all warranties. For this reason you should always use waterproof cable joins like heat shrinks.
Do I need an electrician to set up my 12v garden lights?
No, you do not need an electrician to install 12v garden lights. Transformers plug straight into a powerpoint & all of the 12v components are safe for DIY installation.
What size transformer/driver do I need?
The size of your transformer/driver depends on the total wattage of the lights on your circuit. Eg: If you are using 8 x Spotlights with 5W LED Globes, you’re using 40W. You need a driver that is rated to handle the total of 40W. However, keep in mind that it’s important not to cut it too fine with matching the wattage to the capacity of the driver, if you undersize you will find the farthest lights will flicker. For this reason we recommend you allow for at least an extra 20%.
What’s the difference between an AC Transformer and a DC Driver?
The main difference you need to worry about is their output current. Each brand of lighting has their own specified power compatibility, typically our transformers are 12v or 24v AC & our drivers are 12v DC. So if you’ve got existing lights or globes or are researching, it’s very important to check what power supply they are compatible with before you buy a power supply.
Why should I buy from an Australian website?
