I know there is a few here that sell LED lighting but I am looking for the wiring method. I am in the process of recycling old tv/vcr remotes into IR Illuminators. So I am just needing the wiring help. Anyone know a link to help me.

LEDs use a series resistor. The fixtures they sell usually have those in them. If you do it yourself, you put a resistor in series with the LED and run it off AC or DC, 12 volts recommended. Malibu 12 volt ac transformers work out best so it doesnt matter the polarity.

Here is probably one of the best pages for LEDs:
