1.5.7 Board LED output max current

Recommended Posts

Sorry I missed the original topic:

Uhm, I wouldn't know, except that leds don't really use that much power so therefor it shouldn't be a problem. I'm running 3 IKEA dioder strips of that port.


Thanks for your reply. I am running three short LED stripes on that port also.

But what I wanted was 'hard facts & numbers' ;)in order to don't damage the board on the long-term.

It seems that it is some kind of secret, so we will never know it exactly ;)

I also would like to know this. My original lights have dimmed and yellowed significantly over the years and I bought a 24V LED strip here:


Current draw should be max 600mA for the 1m strip. I hope this will be fine, but interested to know the maximum before assuming.

Any responses would be appreciated.

Kind regards,

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
