    A few months ago I asked ray if he could make a t splitter for power injection. The data signal would go thru uninterrupted but the t part would allow positive and ground connection. I have some of rays prewired milky stars and this splitter could just plug in between.

    Well here it is

    He even used my diagram I drew for him.

    Great, the except its the wrong color!

    Does the v+ go out both ways? The ones from Mileon only have the v+, on one side.

    Wow great idea! A bit pricy @$6.00 each with shipping, but might be worth it.

    Black goes into white as long as they are both 13.5mm

    Thats a good time saver. Made me think but this has probably already been thought of but why couldn't Ray add a fifth wire when making the pixels and then some tee type adapter that could be used at the connector plugs for power injection at that cut point. This could save even more time and be cleaner and easier than running separate injector wires. Just a crazy thought LOL

    These are the stars that I'm connecting. I have 100 of them.

    With the t splitter I only have to make power injection cable. The rest just screws together.

    I have used the white version of those for power injection without any issues.

    That is what I use to use them for power injection.

    I don't see the value in special ones that don't have the 3rd pin - its easy enough to ignore it if you don't want it.

    Sorry mate, I probably should have expanded a little more. You're correct. Just make sure the data is terminated and doesn't touch either + or -
