About our LED Low Wattage Puck Lights

This puck light is the perfect choice for under cabinet illumination and accent lighting with bright warm white light. Each uses only 1.5 watts of power to generate light comparable to a 20-watt incandescent source. These low wattage puck lights may be either surface or recess mounted to suit your installation.


  • 2 Attractive Finishes:
    Black (PLP30-BK)
    Nickel (PLP30-NK)
  • Versatile Mounting: can be either surface mounted or recessed mounted
  • Housing Dimensions: when surface mounted its dimensions are 2-9/16in diameter x 1-1/16in thick; recessed mounted its dimensions are 2in diameter x 1/16in thick.
  • Cutout: 1.75in hole size for recessed mounting
  • Sturdy Construction: molded thermal plastic housing
  • Long Electrical Leads: each has 72-inch 18AWG electrical lead wires that connect to a remote driver. Please note that most electrical codes do not allow for these leads to run through drywall.
  • Switching: for plug-in installations control using plug-in driverís rocker switch. For hardwire installations control using switched outlet.
  • Intended to Shine Down: has been designed to be used so that the light is directed downward. If the Puck Light is installed so that it is facing upward, too much heat may be trapped inside the fixture.


  • 30 Bright LEDs: each has thirty .05W warm white LEDs
  • Wattage: only 1.5 watts per puck
  • Light Output: 36 lumens per puck
  • Warm White Light: color temperature of 3000K, warm white
  • Excellent Rated Life: rated life is 60,000 hours on average
  • Good Color Rendering: CRI of 80
  • No Harmful UV/IR Radiation: UV radiation from incandescent and fluorescent light sources can sometimes cause color change and surface deterioration over time
  • Dimmable: dimmable when powered by electronic dimmable drivers


One 12-volt DC LED driver is required for powering each run of puck lights. Three types of drivers are available. Be sure to select a driver with a wattage rating equal to or slightly greater than the total wattage of the puck lights being powered.

  • Calculating Total Wattage: to determine the LED driver you need, calculate the total wattage rating of your installation by multiplying the number of puck lights you intend to power by 1.5 watts. For example, for 3 puck lights, you would need to select an LED driver rated for at least 4.5 watts (3 Puck Lights x 1.5W/puck = 4.5W).
  • Non-Dimmable Plug-in Driver: up to 3 puck lights can be connected
  • Non-Dimmable Hardwire Drivers
  • Dimmable Hardwire Driver: dimmable with compatible dimmer that connects to secondary side of driver.


All of these items are ordered separately.

  • Decorative Trim Ring: available in either black or white finishes, this trim ring adds a seamless style to the LED Low Wattage Puck Lights when recessed
  • Terminal Block: recommended for connecting multiple puck lights to a single hardwire driver. Note the plug-in driver includes a terminal block
  • Compatible Dimmer: in-wall dimmer for use with dimmable hardwire driver


  • Easy to Install: please refer to these Installation Instructions (PDF). [Caution: Always check local electrical codes and the National Electrical Code (NEC) before installing any lighting products. It is also wise to consult with a licensed electrician in your geographical area about any electrical details that you might have questions about and to make certain that you are satisfying all of the appropriate electrical codes.]
  • Mounting: cord clips are included for mounting lead wires to surfaces
  • Parallel Wiring: each puck light homeruns to the driver

Questions & Answers
By Tim Matthews from NJ on June 11, 2013
I am upgrading from a PALPX light. Do I need to change the 12V driver or can I use the existing 12V driver? If anything the old driver would be over sized.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on June 11, 2013


Thanks for the question.

The PALPX puck lights use a low voltage transformer. This is NOT interchangeable with a constant voltage driver, such as the ones these LED puck lights require. So, yes, you will need to change to a driver.

By Sharon from Butte, MT on January 25, 2014
Can these lights be on top of a cabinet pointed up?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on January 27, 2014

No, we would not recommend it. The lights are designed to point down. Heat dissipation will not work correctly and the life of the product will be reduced.

By Karl from Milford, PA on September 18, 2014
How close do you recommend placing these lights?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 19, 2014

Karl, please check out our blog post on spacing puck lights for some guidance.
By George from NY on September 19, 2014

I installed one puck under each cabinet with the capability to be dimmed. I do not think it is overkill but my counter top and back plash are dark.

By Steve from Portland, OR on June 30, 2014
Can these be installed with a dimmer switch?
By Chris from Pegasus Lighting on June 30, 2014


These LED puck lights are dimmable as long as you also use an electronic dimmable driver to power the lights, like the 25-Watt 12-Volt DC Dimmable Electronic Hardwire Constant Voltage LED Driver shown in the Accessories section of this product.

By Mike from Chicago on March 19, 2014
Can I link 9 lights together?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on March 19, 2014

Mike, the puck lights all wire to the remote LED driver. The puck lights cannot be linked to each other.

You certainly can connect 9 puck lights to a single driver.
By Russell from Arnaudville, LA on March 19, 2014

You can link as many as you like as long as you don't exceed the total wattage of your LED driver's output load. It is a good idea to have a little bit bigger of a driver than your actual wattage needs so that you don't overload the driver. These are great little pucks. And they are dimmable.
By Adam from Ohio on March 19, 2014

These fixtures require 1.5W of power to them so you would need a LED driver that is 13.5W or greater. They also home-run to the driver instead of daisy-chain. If you install 9 then you'll want to use the large terminal block, maybe a couple, to group the fixtures together and make the install easier.
By Dan from Tulsa, OK on March 19, 2014

Yes. You must have a 20 watt 12-volt LED driver to hook all 9 lights together. At 1.5 watts each it is a total of 15 watts and a 20w driver will work. The available drivers will show in the right-hand column on the puck light page.
By from bellmawr, NJ on March 19, 2014

I have 12 in my kitchen. due to cabinet spacing i am using 2 under each cabinet. i ran wires from each pair to a junction box then ran 1 set to the transformer. then 1 pair back up to the dimmer switch so yes 12 all together.

By Glenn Bethany from Colorado Springs, CO on July 2, 2014
Initially installed three under counter 12v 20 watt dimmerable Puck lights. Power from step down transformer. Have lost two of three units because replacement 12v bulbs fail to make good contact with receptacle when installed. Rather than rewire with 110v, wish to replace the units. Seems 110v Xenon and LED units have replaced the 12v 20W replacement products. Rewiring estimates around $300. Recommendations?
By Ila from Pegasus Lighting on July 3, 2014

Standard low voltage puck lights remain very popular. However, LED puck lights are a good replacement. My suggestion is that if your existing puck lights are recessed mounted and you are entertaining the thought of using LED puck lights for replacement, then choose an LED puck that will require the same hole cut out dimension as the original.

Please note that LED Puck Lights also require a power supply (driver) and not a typical transformer used for low voltage lighting.

By Ken from Chicago on April 29, 2014
I plan to mount two on my garage ceiling, can these be used for wood carving? Will they be bright enough?

By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on April 30, 2014

Ken, I would not recommend them for a ceiling lights application. These are designed for under cabinet installations.
By Adam from Ohio on April 30, 2014

These are considered task lights. So they are not meant to throw a lot of light from a far distance. The best output would be around 18"-24" from the work surface.
By Rose from Chicago, IL on April 30, 2014

No not bright enough for that. These are for under a cabinet NOT a ceiling.
By Alex from Charleston, SC on April 30, 2014

I think this might be a little less light then you would want for wood carving, but it would really depend on the distance from the ceiling of your garage to your workstation. I have 4 that are used as under cabinet lighting the kitchen and there is about 2 feet from where they are mounted to the counter top. This provides me with enough light even when they are the only lights on, but if they were say 4, 5, or even more feet away from the surface I don't think it would be enough light.

By Susan from Indiana on May 3, 2014
We are thinking about installing these in our glass front cubbies. We would need 18 of them and would like to hard wire them. What all would we need to do this installation?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on May 5, 2014


Since you will be installing 18 you will probably need to use at least two drivers. The total wattage is 27W, and the largest driver available can handle 25W.

Please see the accessories for the compatible drivers.
