Splicing CCB II

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to splice a string of CCBs to separate them by a few feet using pigtails?   Basically I would like to run the same string on a couple different areas with some gap and don't want to have bulbs that I don't light up between them.  (Moving from one window to an adjacent window that is only 24" away).

Technically yes.  It will void the warranty however.  With the short distances between windows for you, it wont be a problem.  Make sure you get the wires right or you will let the smoke out.

What if I wanted to do it at a greater distance?   Say I wanted to do it at 15 feet?

My experience is with other brands (12V). 15' is pushing it. 

The chip in the bulb was designed for a dozen or so  inches, not for long runs. They are Not like controllers that expect cables. Some null pixels midway (between) may help
