No...a bar of led's in the 48" with 60 lights draws 225~ 305 mA, that's just a little over a 1/4 of an amp. Just a fused switch will suffice.

Yeah I have the same question. My only issue is if it is 3watt each you need a heat sink so my gut is telling me its the entire bar. If each bulb is 3watt I have a side business that could use alot of these. Hey if you make these can you look in to the cost of using Cree XM-L LEDs? I need each bulb drived at 2-3watt.

I believe I can get fully submersible ones in the near future.

I misunderstood the question. They are 3w per 10". I'm not sure on the exact number of LED's I'll check when I get home.

So if I read correctly (remember I'm not an electrician) one (1) whole 10" strip is 3 watts and does not need a relay?

What if you're running two strips or four?

I'm not sure. I'm still planning on running a small inline fuse before I get my aftermarket fuse box. I thought a relay was only if I wanted to connect it in a way that it only turns on when my ignition is on so no one drains their battery on accident.

There are 9 LED's in each 10" bar.

I got pictures of the Lights in the bed of the truck with a camper shell. One 10" bar on the ceiling would be sufficient if you are on a budget. Two 10" bars would be good if you have a lot of things in your bed. If you are interested in putting the bars under the bed rails, I would recommend two under each of the sides and one under the rail near the cab. If under a budget, you do not absolutely need the one in the back but it helps the lighting a lot.

Pictures will go up soon, I don't have the camera on me right now...
