I'm making some of those led style neon lights for home that seem to be in every bar nowadays.
I have some 5 metre lengths of the silicone LEDs.
I'm going to solder the ends onto a 12v female jack connector which will fit into my 12v power pack.
I think the Amps are around 2a
24w = 12v X 2a if my working out is correct.
What wire size and strand type would people suggest i use to do this. I will also be soldering some joins in this set up along the LEDs. Ideally i want to use thinner wire as it is easier to work with.
I have some that came supplied with the kit, it is quite thin and stranded but would prefer advise on this.
