    Default simple LED question

    This is my first post. I Tred to do a search but not familiar with the process.

    Simple question is are there more than 2 voltages of led replacement bulbs?

    I have a number of "professional" light sets purchased from Sam's Club a few years ago. I think I have 10 strings of 130 count. I have repaired the some of the strings. I have also been using bulbs out of strings that I gave up on to replace bulbs in other strings.

    I will have at least on other question later but let's start with this easy one.

    So you have left out a lot of information that would be needed to answer your question. Are these AC or DC strings? Do they have any sort of controller or do they just plug in? Are the LEDs different colors or do they use colored caps? The best thing you can do is find a similar string and send us a link to the product.


    2022 - Not sure yet. At least two new songs.
    2021 New Tune-to sign. New 40x27 matrix at the house. Retiring the Strip based matrix. Updating some of the old window frames to the new house. Adding two new songs.
    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    Many LED string lights have a individual forward voltage of 2-3V. It usually varies by color.

    If you have professional lights, they are probably fully rectified but likely 120ish volts. One blob or two? Assuming two, at 65 per blob you would be in the just under 2v range.

    In my research, I did not find many different replacement led bulbs. And the ones I found at Amazon were listed in the area of 2-3 volts.

    Are your strings multi-color or solid color. It might help us give a better answer.
