What do I need to know..or what's important in the datasheet that I should look out for?
I've always called these things an "AC adapter".
Will this work for my project since it provides a direct current of 1000ma?
The BuckToot operates with input voltages from 5 to 28VDC and can supply up to 350mA.
This is a breakout board for the very high-intensity LUXEON Rebel General Purpose White LED. The board is designed to dissipate damaging heat away from the LED to the back of the board.
I want to use a bright LED to illuminate my 9'x8' room. I just went for one of the brightest LED I could find on Sparkfun.
