    Here is my craziest string chain from the controller:
    I must power inject the snowflakes since the lights are close together you'd notice the voltage drop.

    I'm tackling the challenge of running my entire show from one e682 controller using about 2000 lights. Adding null pixels doesn't bother me and my testings are working great so far.

    Ran my matrix this year off my E682, some of the outputs were 100 nodes, at 50% I noticed no color change, never did check the voltage, should have though.

    A good link for calculating power > http://spikerlights.com/calcpower.aspx

    WOW! That is an AWESOME LINK!!!! THANK YOU!!!
    Based on my previous power injecting diagram for my system, it will work for me!
    The biggest drop in voltage is in the middle of my largest snowflake. (power from both sides of 216 pixels)
    But I think it will still look great. In my large snowflake testing, I couldn't see any difference at the middle of the string.
