I'm designing a backlit custom picture frame, and I want to include the power supply (or the lack of one) inside the body of the frame.
The problem is, since the frame design is more or less thin, I don't have space to place a power supply, so I ran into this doubt, can I make a circuit to use a LED strip that connects directly to 220v without using a power supply?.
My knowledge of electronic is almost null, I ran into several links explaining how to power LEDs strips directly to 200v, but, I have honestly no idea what problems, advantages or disadvantages I could find, and the language used was kind of advanced for me.
Basically, I want to know if this is possible, and what is required to do so.
Please explain to me like If I'm 6 years old, thanks!.
