Default How many can I run

I mostly wade gig but am thinking on setting my skiff back to boat gig. Bit foolin with genny any more. So question is how many 50 watt LEDs can run on a 24 volt series for any extended time. Say 5 hours? I'm sure this has been discussed before but searches only showed me types of lights not how many and run time

It's roughly 2 - 2.5 amp draw per 50w led on a 24dcv system, roughly 5.2 hours run time. On 12vdc, it'd be roughly 3 - 3.5 hours run time. But using 110acv 50w led's on a generator, each 50w will draw .5 amp. Hope this helps...

* about 10 50w leds on 24dcv
