It’s not advisable just to twist the connections together – especially with low voltage lighting, as it usually ends with bad connections and in turn a fire – remember the watts is voltage times amps, so for a given wattage at at lower voltage, the current is higher – You do NOT want a bad connection when running a high current trough anything – it resusults in disasters…

Hey Karl, Thanks for stickin up for us! However Noth and Cherishdeb are right…. This video has a few things wrong with it and really should not be used as a professional opinion. Someone who does not know about electricity may hurt themselves.. We have since changed a few things with our power units to make them safer.

assuming the 5050 60/m uses 4.4 watts per foot…. you need 404 watts of electricity, a general rule of thumb is to get a power supply with 20% greater capacity than what you will be using… So in this case 485 watts. I would recommend getting a few smaller power supplies to make up the wattage needed.

This is because these 5050s can really only be ran 20 feet or so before you get voltage drop. You need to run them in parallel for the 92 feet.

i have a 24 led strip thats waterproof, at 12vDC 50/60hz
and i dont fully know what im doing, i just wanna hook it up to a power supply to light up my fishtank.
like what Daniel said,”couldn’t i just get a power plug and cut it and then connect the LED’s?”

One Question: Can i cut the Srtip in half and put this in the second Channel Output to make a synchronousli Light show of 2 Strips ? THX

We no longer sell this model of aluminum power supply. Our drivers (for the past year) not have three pronged grounded plugs, and a protective casing for the terminal screws. Thanks for this message. We should just take this video down, as we obviously need to change a better majority of it. Thanks again

Please be safe and use a grounded ( 3 prong ) plug. There’s a reason that terminal is provided on the power supply.

Also, please fuse the 12VDC output at 5A or less. 10A at 12VDC (120W) is enough to start a fire should there be a short ( with 1.2 ohms of resistance). You could run multiple fused 5A lines to separate LED strips if you need to run more than 5A worth of lighting.

I’m in Australia so the ports are diffrent. couldn’t i just get a power plug and cut it and then connect the LED’s? or would be that not be safe ( btw Australia use 240v )

Hi guys! Subscribe “SammaDetVelGAMES” and i can give you up to 500 SUBS!
This is legit!
