    Hello!
    Wondering what kind of power cable people are using to feed the P12 with the option of the power inputs also powering all pixel strings.
    I'm specifically using on or two 12V / 29A / 250W power supply(s) to power each or both 30A fused banks on the P12. I was thinking of using SPT1 cord, but then realized it only had a 7A limit.

    I use AWG 10 cable, in the metric world this would be 6 mm^2

    I use 6mm2 cable for mine. The cable needs to be big enough to supply the power needs of your lights.

    So if you were only using the P12 for its Data and injecting power then it doesnt need a big cable, but no one really uses the P12 like that.
