There are various kinds of LED lights, like led downlight and actually, the diode is an electronic semiconductor device through which current can flow in one direction. The LED is a device that can light up when current flows through it in hte proper direction actually. LED lights are different greatly in sizes, colors, designs and so forth and you are advised to wire it to a switch to have control over when the LED is on.

Step 1
Prepare things you will need, like LED, switch, resistor, copper wire, 12-volt power source, soldering iron, solder and so forth.

Step 2
Note the rated amperage and voltage for the LED that you purchased.

Step 3
Use a formula to calculate the value of resistor that you will need for your circuit.

Step 4
Ensure the switch is off. Connect the other side of the resistor to one terminal of the switch with a piece of copper wire. Solder the wire to both the switch and the resistor. You are advised to solder a piece of copper wire between the other terminal of the switch and the positive side of hte power supply. Well, this side of the power supply will be marked with a  "+" and will usually be the red terminal on a commercial power supply.

Step 5
You need a third piece of wire to be placed between the power supply and the negative side of the LED which will be shorter of the 2 leads coming out of the LED. Then you are advised to solder the wire to the LED and power supply. Turn on the switch to ensure that you wire the led lights correctly and ensure the LED lights up properly.
