12 volt garden lighting

Post by Kheïyd » Tue Apr 18, 2017 9:34 pm

I will come back to Thailand in May and would like to install some 12 volt LED lights in our garden.

Does anybody know if 12 volt LED garden lights, and especially the DC LED-transformers, are being sold by Home Pro or Global House?

Any other suggestions are welcome.

Hi Oakdale160,

Thank you.

I tried to search their website but it is not always clear if it is a 220 or 12 volt light. I also haven't seen any transformers so I will bring a few from home.

Now just looking for a place I can buy NYY. Haven't seen that yet, only VAF and THW.

You may find something at Lazada or other online stores in Thailand.
I've noticed those advertised at Lazada generally refer to a power adaptor (transformer, 12V 1Amp adaptor) as per example in attached link

Great site Bluesky,

I am definitely going to use it and not only for the cables. The transformer I buy in The Netherlands.

I have several 12v spotties throughout my garden lighting everything up.

The way its setup is, i have one 12v transformer fitted in a electrical box, with a timer and then a cable runs from that through my garden.

This way you wont need a transformer at every light and you wont have 240v running under your ground.
