    Default RobG 20W Flood - How much Current do these need?

    I bought several RobG 20W flood kits in a GB several years ago that I have never put together. I am planning on doing so shortly but I do not have my 24v PS yet. How much current does each individual flood draw? I do not want to purchase more PS than I really need.

    Thanks in advance

    TY.

    I had not seen that site as I had purchased in a Group Buy several years ago.

    i hate to sound like a smartass, but as per the description they require 20W. P/V=I 20/24 = 0.84A. That being said, I've run them off of 0.75A PSUs before and it worked fine.
