To get one the exact same as you have I would suggest you try google.

If you just want an LED driver I would look at the "usual suspects" ebay, screwfix,TLC direct, & toolsation

Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

I have been to screwfix and toolstation but they couldn't advise which one is suitable or recommend one since they are not electricians. Maybe this one? https://www.screwfix.com/p/halolite-ele ... _container

You need to get one like for like, not like for similar.

I hate to admit it, but clear that your picture is, I can not read the text.

The device you linked to does not say it is a LED driver does it,(I can read that :-P ) so that is NOT what you want.

Take the old one to an electrical wholesaler, if they don't have one in stock they should be able to order it.

260 mA is the current it seems but voltage is in a range 25 - 42 and if you can reduce that range then you can increase the range of drivers which will do the job.

So white LED at approx 3 volt then 10 would be around 30 volt so as long as 260 mA then you could maybe reduce the voltage range. When I hunted I could only find a 24 volt max here I could not find one with voltage range your looking for.
