For an atmospheric custom ambient lighting project, consisting of 60 individually on/off switchable COB LED's, each rated 2 Watts, 12~14V, max 200mA, all connected in PARALLEL, i'm looking to solve two questions.
First I'll sketch the situation. Often times only 1 (out of 60!) Led will be switched on. Other times between 3 to 6 leds will be switched on. Rarely will there be more than 18 led's switched on and never all 60 at once.
Q1. As a single LED driver, will a 35W, 3A driver suffice for my project?
Q2. Will that tiny resistor on the cob pcb protect each led from high currents of the driver? Or will I have to manually solder resistors in series with each LED cob? If so, what Ohms / Power value am I looking for?
