Cutting a strand of lights?


Recommended Posts

Hello! Well I finally got arount to taking down my lights today (and put up valentines lights) and during the recent storms here i had a small branch fall and of course it hit 6 strands of LEDs perfectly and cut them all in half. Now they sill work, but is it safe? And also if I were to cut one of the strands even shorter would that be ok?

Thank you for your help!

I don't have any of the new LED lights. If they work just as the standard minis, sure they will light, but you may notice the LEDS are brighter which will shorten their life.

Even with LED's, they still draw a voltage drop per each LED in the string. When you start to remove segments, the remainder will operate brighter or above the recommended voltage which can actually "blow" an LED out.
