Just wondering if anyone knows where I can purchase Red or Green DC light strings. Either 12V, 30V or 36V.


Tried www.mysolarled.com and they can do it but shipping was $130 Aus for just 12 strings, I can't understand how it could cost so much. If it wasn't for shipping the strings would be a good price and he wouldn't ship it via standard china post.


Thanks

Try http://top-atom.en.alibaba.com/

There is more info on their string sets here http://auschristmaslighting.com/forums/index.php?topic=4583.msg39855#msg39855

The green is brighter than the red which is VERY red. They are very good quality but only 1 channel each.

They run at slightly lower voltage than the Big W sets and the red was about 28V (despite the seller saying 24V) but I can't guarantee that and testing is always a good idea. Adding resistors can increase the voltage to 30V or 36V but decreases efficiency slightly.

Bunnings has sold green 31V 4.9M 100 LED sets for at least the last 2 years. Last year they were $15. The quality was alright but I have seen better.
