How many strings of incan. mini lights can you run per channel? we want to wrap a tree fairly completely with these but am unsure of how many we can have per channel without issue.

Thanks

depends on the controller....8amp is max per channel and 15amp per side.

again depends on the controller. mine are 30amp total (pc controllers).

It also depends on the strings, how many amps do they use?

Pick up a kill-o-watt meter at Home Depot or Lowes, they run about $20.00 - $30.00, but they will tell you how many amps you are using.

Read little tags near the plugs and divide 8 by that number. Also please be advised that with Icans there is a limit of 3 strings plugged into each other to make a longer string. And one more thing you forgot to add to your question. What is the count of those strings. Is it 50, 75, 100, 140 or 200 bulbs each. Not that I could give you a good answer based on the number of bulbs. Best bet is the kill a watt meters in the electrical section of Home Depot and I would also think that Lowes carries one too.

Better yet, ditch the icans and get yourself LEDs. And throw your problems away. no limit that you will ever have to worry about reaching.
