    I was told that you can make any LED light flash with a flasher. Is this true? I have a few 6in oval LED that I would like to wire up to use for volunteer fire response. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get a flasher unit. I might need two of them as I am looking to run eight of the oval lights.

    Yes, halogen flasher and led flashers will flash leds. Some halogen flasher are big enough and you won't need 2 of them. Look into the sound off led flashers. The sho-me ones are nice, but they are chaper and don't work on just any led light.

    MOST led lights will only work with a flasher if they have a steady burn option. I know for sure this is the case with whelen lights. If the lights will not steady burn, a flasher will not do you any good.

    I believe the ones he has does not have its own flasher which is why he needs one. It Only has steady burn.

    I got a flasher unit from rcpd34 and it works flawlesly. I hooked it up to some standard 6in oval led lights. Have four in the grill for now. Great guy to deal with and a great product.
