Hey All,
I was just wondering if there were any rules when it comes to shortening LED light strings.
Can I just cut the wire and splice the leads together?
Thanks

Easiest way would be in add a resistor rather than just join the wires again. There are a few threads around here about LEDs strings that contain what you're after. I'll have a search myself and see if I can find them.
