MR16/GU5.3 LED Bulbs

  1. Mar 2, 2009 #1
    Hi there,

    I was wondering if anybody could tell me if it was possible to get MR16 bulbs in 220v(I live in Ireland).Do all MR16 bulbs have to have a power supply or transducer to step the voltage down to 12/24 DC or can they just run on mains without the p.supply?

    Thanks in advance.

    The Wikipedia is often a good first step...
