    You can get a range of outdoor power supplies from Ray Wu here, they are cheap and lower quality but they do the job, but I do recommend that you get yourself a spare.

    It is still worth having a spare even if you use high quality MeanWell power supplies bought within Australia. One of mine failed and you can't always get a warranty replacement immediately.

    Thanks for that. I've grabbed one. Unfortunately it won't arrive before christmas, but at least I'll get some stuff finished for next christmas.

    On a related note, I've also ordered more stuff from HolidayCoro to complete the pixel icicle kit they sell (I need more length to do the front of the house).

    In general it is cheaper to buy from Ray Wu (or Ben Brown) in Australia. He has everything holiday coro has, but it ships straight from china rather than going to the US first. He also has plenty of other options for those times that the standard items won't quite do it.

    I have a really nice outdoor meanwell 12v fan less unit, I think it is 22amp. This year I mounted it on the roof, rain and heat hasn't worried it. I've got the meanwell clones down stairs, for the roof a good quality supply was worth it, I don't mind replacing the ones downstairs if they pop, not keen on gettting on the roof in the night to replace that one!
