Welcome to the PF.

It doesn't sound like you should be messing with an AC Mains project yet. What is the voltage rating of each of the LED bulbs? You should use a safety-approved DC voltage source to power your LED project. :smile:

So they screw into light fixtures that you wire to the AC Mains?

Yes, berkeman, for the AC Mains. My question is can I put 6 bulbs 3 watts each all in one switch -- will they work? Is it safe?

No, your AC Mains *voltage* is 220Vac. :smile:

6 bulbs * 3 watts is only 18 watts. That is still a very light load. You may want to get an electrician to help you wire up the circuit. There are certain safety rules that you must follow.

I take it you have never been to the Philippines ?

My wife is from there, and every time I visit, I cringe at the mains cabling strung around buildings ... commercial and homes
its truly a nightmare .... Rules ?! ... if there are rules, they are, unfortunately, rarely followed :frown:

The same applies to general building codes etc, I often think ... ohhh, I hope I'm not in here during an earthquake

I don't know if you are in the US, but even if you are in a different country, the NEC is a good reference for electrical safety. I'd recommend checking a copy out of your local library to read through, or just buy a copy online to use to learn:

If he is really an electrician - tell him to wire it up the same as 3 incandescent bulbs - if the LED are rated for the 220V - there is no difference in wiring them up. Technically we call this parallel. If he is still confused - please get a new electrician.
