    Hi all,

    A little video on cutting off the connector on the 2009 Big-W strings so they can be used with a DC lighting controller.

    Modify 2009 Big-W LED String

    Cheers
    Phil

    Nice video Phil.

    It's good to be able to see it, rather than just read about it. And it's not too technical for people like me.

    I missed this year's sales, but was that just an extension of lights? As i believe Big W had the starter kit with controller, and also extensions that needed a starter kit.

    How about the same video on this years stock at Big W when it comes in.. or hopefully it will be the same.

    Much appreciated.

    Yes that was one of the extension, of the 40-50 packs i bought only 1 of them was a starter kit to use at work and i can't find it now.
    Poor staff at Big-W keep asking if I wanted Starter Kits for the first couple of weeks they were on the shelf.

    If they change the construction then yes new video will be in order.

    Cheers
