Hi there, I am hoping someone can help me here.

I'm having a bit of an disagreement (read: fight) with my dad over the power consumption of my lights. His concern (and mine to an extent) is the consumption of 240v power.

I have estimated that all of my pixels will use at the extreme 310A @ 5V.

I am hoping someone can give me a formula to calculate the Amps that would be used from mains.

I am aware that this won't be perfect but it's better then not having a real idea.

Thanks in advance for you help.

David.
