Is there a limit to how many leds you can have on one circuit ? Im sure I read somewhere there is ? Can it trip out the breaker not from overload obviously. Im thinking of using aurora ones if anyones used those before also ??

The instructions for one I've used say: "Halers Lighting recommend a max of 15 EvoLEDs per circuit when using Type B circuit breakers and a max of 35 EvoLEDs per circuit when using Type C circuit breakers." (although they don't mention the rating of the MCBs)

I think others have suggested treating each unit the same as a 50W halogen in term of switch-on surge.

I presume it's switch-on surge (a.k.a. starting current) - charging the capacitors in the electronic drivers I guess.
