I have 6 parallel connected led "strips" each having 4 leds in series connection (see image below).
Those leds should be 3W each (2.4V and 700mA max each)
I have a LED drive as power supply (should be 12V and 6A max)
I tried measure the voltage and the current and I found out, that there is only 1/6A = 0.16A running through each LED with the voltage 12/4 = 3V each (rounded) thus having 0.16*3 = 0.48W.
I can't find what is wrong with my observations and/or calculations or if those leds are not really a 3W LED. I guess there is something wrong with my calculations or observations because the LEDs in this setup are bright enough and based on my original calculation it should work this way.
Thanks for help
