    I did it by soldering a 280 ohm resisitor across the terminals. The ones I used were a bit small and do get warm so I don't know how long they will work for. 1 Watt resistors will do fine at that resistance. Don't forget the LED's are polarity semsitive so if it doesn't work first time just turn it round !
