Anyone Running a LED lightbar off mains power?

Anyone thought of doing this? Thinking it would be a good backyard light. They are so cheap and super bright these days. Wonder if they would overheat being on for long periods? How would I go about converting 240v to 12v?

there are plenty of 240 to 12v transformers for all sorts of things like TVs, computers etc, whether they can handle the current draw, I don't know
