What Power supply would you recommend for these LEDS?

I am building a 16x16x16 LED cube, much like Malt Whiskey’s on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciaFar8nfHc&t=835s

I am using different LEDs (the top-hat version): https://www.aliexpress.us/item/2251832645784910.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.order_list_main.17.1f631802S6pJkE&gatewayAdapt=glo2usa#nav-specification

In the Youtube video Malt used 4 power supplies of 5v @60 Amps each. I’m assuming my LEDs will require the same power?

Anyway, what power supply would you recommend? I looked at LED drivers but can’t find any that offer 60 amps. I prefer Meanwell power supplies but not really sure the difference is between their different series.


Welcome to the Digikey tech forum. We have these power supplies that would fullfill the 5 VDC at 60 amps or more on the output but using different LED’s can cause issues. Forward voltages and current requirements are not the same for LED’s . You would need to calculate your power requirements from the LED’s you are going to use to be sure you select the proper power supply.
