    Default Need help to waterproof power adapter for LED RGB tape light

    Hi all - I am so new to the DIY Christmas decoration. I have some wireframe that I need to replace the incandescent lights with LED. I bought some RGB waterproof tape light on Amazon and zip tie to my frame, and it works great. However both the built in chase controller and 12V power adapter are not waterproof. Can you tell me how to waterproof or change the non-waterproof power adapter to waterproof adapter? Thanks in advance

    You can bag them. You can cover them with a piece of plastic container. You can put them inside a plastic container.

    Wax. What you say? No seriously, way back in the day we would conformal coat circuit boards that would be subject to moisture with wax. I did the same with my pathway light boards. So maybe not a solution for this particular question but if you need to "conformal coat" a board, it may work for what you need
