    I am building an indoor mega tree using ws2801 strings from Ray. As the ends of the strings will be say 4 to 6 feet radius away from the centre I am looking at where I can get long pigtails from the jst connectors on each end. At the centre will be a box housing two power supplies and a E682 board.

    The pigtails refered by ray were round :(

    JST Connectors on strings just like the connectors on model aircraft mainly to battery packs, but the ones you can purchase from them are only about 15cm long at the most.


    The Male end has the following colours from the chip to the connector.
    Orange
    Yellow
    Green
    Blue

    but on the connector itself there is a free 6 cm red wire also soldered to the orange
    and a free 6cm Blue wire also soldered to the Yellow wire.

    The Orange wire is marked 5v on the chips solder pad.
