I mistakenly connected a power charger in series with my ceiling led lights... oh... whell... the reality is more complex, but essentially: 1) when the switch is off, the phone power charger is in series with the lights, the lights do switch off in this case (I presume because of too low voltage), and the charger works correctly 2) when the switch is on, the phone charger is shorted and goes off, but the led lights go on correctly.
The scenario 2 is of little interest to me.
Of course when in 1) they are in series they will not get 220V* each as normal/parallel connection, but a smaller portion. (*I am in europe)
It is my understanding that an electronic device may try to draw more current if working under lower voltage than what it should get, in order to generate the same amount of Watts and operate correctly.
In short: I am concerned about the power consumption in scenario 1). This is 99% of the time of course, and the main concern is that electricity will have to go through the led bulbs evenduring the 99% of the time while they are off.
Can anyone help?
Leds are non dimmable if that makes a difference, the mobile charger is of course 220/120v , this is hardwired in behind the wall, so no risk of someone coming in and connecting their hair dryer in place of it :D
Thanks for any help!!
