    Hi everyone

    Before last Christmas I decided to try my hand at expanding my light display and try LOR for the first time.

    I purchased from china 105 sets of 10mtr 100 led Red, Green and White lights with resistor and AU plug.

    After using some of the lights last year I found them quite good apart from a couple sets blown, this year I am expanding the display more with more channels but to do this I need to extend the length of the lights.

    What I am looking for is a 2 pin connector that I can extend the cord for mini trees ( on roof ) and some leaping arch's.

    If anyone can help me locate a suitable connector that will suit the 240v lights that are drawing 3amps.

    attached is pictures of the light set and the resistor.

    Cheers

    You may want to look at these plugs, i use them for 12VDC but i would asked Ray if they are good for 240V, they gave a great weatherproof seal last year for me and i didnt have an issue at all with any of the plugs.
    You just need to ensure they can handle 240v but from the look of these they look like they will.
