Soldering led neon strip lights, amps and wire thickness

by mart321 » Mon Oct 03, 2022 5:19 pm

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.

Thanks in advance
