    According to the manual for my Aurora LED downlights I need to wire the downlighters in serial. This is fine.

    But what sort of wire/flex? I only need one wire from +ve to -ve of each light on the loop. Therefore is 2-core a wasted core?

    It should say. What is the part number for the driver?

    Can you scan and post the instructions?

    Ignore me... I mispoke and was referring to the lower powered driver re. wiring in serial. Turns out this new one has three outputs so can be wired in parallel. That means I can use two core I guess...

    Still doesn't say the cable requirements though...
