    No need to order a driver. Check your ZOOM. The IC driver is incorporated on the aluminium PCB. As to heat transfer paste, a paste for PCUs on a desk top is suitable.
    If you check item description then..
    .
    1.soldering the wire to the L N point.

    2. paste the thermal silicone grease to the back of LEDs.

    3. install the LEDs to the heatsink or your floodlight.

    4. connect to AC220V, start working.

    Package:

    220V 20W 30W 50W 70W 100W LED Floodlight COB Chip, Integrated Smart IC Driver

    And then of course there are 240volt COB lights: https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Main_Index/Lighting_Menu_Index/Lamps_and_Tubes_Index/LEDlite_LED_Dim/index.html#LEDlite_LED_COB Most LED lights can be obtained in 240volts, GU10 and all other fittings, much more convenient than trying to salvage transformers from the 12volt range of old.

    Yes Loopski, I read that but I thought I would wait for you to post back. Sounds good doesn’t it no external driver? When a driver fails and they do it’s easier to replace the driver but more importantly on the version you have shown a small component failure (from overheating) and the whole board+heatsink and therefore lamp can become live 220 volts. Several cases of this resulting in injury and fire. On Fake Britain they even flagged this up and Trading standards wouldn’t allow mainstream products into the UK for this reason.  Personally I would go lower voltage external driver setup unless you are sure it’s completely safe double insulated.

    Yes I saw that further up the thread and clicked the link. A lot of ampoules suitable for a small spot light, completely NOT for a flood light. And GU10s all a bit daft but using nevertheless.

    Vic’s question was about re using old transformers for his x24 G4 halogens lamps. Where exactly does your post and link to GU10’s fit in? :scratch:

    It was a general comment that 240volt LED’s of any type are available, the original post is about LED floodlights not G4’s, you really ought to read the posts properly, before you try to have a pop.

    Compliment of the season to you.

    Saw this arrangement on Ali, if I was buying new FLOOD LIGHTS then this would be my choice.

    Oh I see, so you were not replying to Vic’s post even though you went on to mention transformers?

    So the GU10 were for a flood light?  Oh no you seemed to have now changed that to all LED’s are available in 240 volts so you weren’t reply to Vic’s question like I was, well it’s an easy mistake to make.

    So I did read Vic’s post correctly and answered Vic’s question :good:

    You see, you have a history of wriggling like a maggot on a hook and like a politician have an excuse ready for any possible misunderstanding made by anyone else as you never make any mistake.

    Enough background noise, lets get back to the topic as it develops.

    I do wish you’d stop saying ” Vic’s question” as I didn’t ask one.

     

    Whilst I’ve got your attention there is one question I’ve asked which is  yet to receive a reply so still piquing my curiosity.

    Who or what is “Raising the standards of swimming pool knowledge and technology.” as your latest signature now says?

    I’m not sure if the transformers will work.

    Sure sounded like a question but you old folk do a lot of mumbling out loud, just didn’t realised you actually type your mumbling to

    Hell! now I’ve made that list I doubt I’ll live long enough to get my money back if I change ’em all so maybe I’ll stick at the high wattage floodlights :whistle:Here’s hoping

    Sorry your question is off topic, start your own thread in the correct section, that’s swimming pools btw.

    Dear Oh Dear! I only pointed out your apparent difficulty reading my post & thereafter misquoting me.

    Interesting how when you cock up your fallback is always pathetic insults.

    I’m getting on a bit maybe but compos mentis enough to know when a question is asked. For your information questions are ALWAYS followed be a squiggly thing called a QUESTION MARK like this ? Seems like your grasp of basic punctuation  is on a par with your maths.

    Was that a general ” you old folk do a lot of mumbling out loud….” or just directed at me.? I’m sure the many ‘old folk’ on here would be interested to know.
