I would like to fit my house with the Cree LR6 led but the price is prohibitive (approx USD200.00) in Australia.I see they are available for as low as USD90.00 in the U.S.A. We use 240v supply in Australia and I cannot find the 240v model at the low price Can anybody tell me if it is possible to run the LR6 110v model at 240V and, if not, if it would be possible to run 2 X 110v units in series without damaging them.
We contacted our Cree representative and found out that Cree is coming out with a LR6-277 Volt in the US in Dec/ January 2009/10. Right now Cree only has the 120V version in the US, 60 HZ.To get a 230V you must contact Zumtobel, Cree's European distributor. The 230V is 50 HZ. The 230V can only be purchased through Zumtobel. You can get their contact information at http://www.zumbotel.com.If you would like I can send you the PDF spec sheet for the 230V to you by email...let me know.

Thanks for the information. There's no problem with sourcing the 230v lights in Australia they are just really expensive. I want to put quite a lot of them in and the 110v lights are less than half the rice of the 230v lights.What I want to know is can I run two 110v lights in series at 240v without damaging them? I know its not the recommended thing but I want to do it anyway. Can anybody help with this? My other alternative is to run them via a 230v -110v transformer but this would require significant rewiring of my house which I'm trying to avoid.
My initial reaction is that it would not be a good idea to run two 110V fixtures in a series or in any other combination on 240V.
i think you might as well not dong so.
