    I tried searching/asking around but havent been able to find an answer for this, so here it goes.
    I have a supply voltage of 125v, and want to use that to power some leds. I know resistors would get too hot for this right? So what could i do to run those leds? Using a standalone battary is an option, but I would prefer not to do that.

    Thanks.

    You wont find any...at least not cheap. You could just get a wallwort that changes it to 2-4 volts for normal leds.

    Look at this.

    As well as this.

    I don't recommend utilizing it without isolation and current limiting.

    Thank you all, but I think il just go with a battery as mobius9 suggested. This is for a powerstrip mod, which will be powering my computer and maybe more at lans, so I got no mess-up room :p
