    The extensions were $12.87 I think. I will need to go in store for a closer look.
    Oops... forgot to mention that bit!
    Confirm Purple...
    and confirm "clear"...

    200 for $AU20; 250 for $AU35; 500 for $AU49

    Prices and variety can be seen on the web store

    Got some photos of the BigW LED strings for this season, wire has clear insulation like those you see on ebay(looks ugly and cheap imo)

    Bugger!
    Because they didn't have that "no transformer included" sticker on there last year, I got access to a stack of reduced-orice, "wrong-product" returns when PPL bougt the "cheaper" lights home only to find it had no transformer...
    Guess its "list price" this year.

    Could still happen this year? People are bound to make the same mistake. I bought 8 sets at discounted retail (a week before xmas). Lol or pull the "No transformer" stickers off and put them with the w\transformer sets as both kits are roughly the same size in terms of packaging.

    I got all my lights for this year from good old china, but will watch out when they discount BigW sets and grab a few. But am chasing some LED rope-lights\motifs both of which BigW charge a bucketload for.

    SlyFox04 thanks for the Pictures. I busted my foot up a bit and haven't been able to make it out to Big W.

    I notice they have resistors fitted. Cool!
    I didn't buy any with transformers last year, I also notice the transformers this year say 22V @10VA. Does any one remember what they were last year?

    Last year 120 LEDs meant White, Blue and Green were connected in a strings of 10 LEDs and Red in Strings of 15 LEDs. I wonder how they are connect this year?

    Couldn't find starter kits last year, pretty sure it was 24V. The bulb ratings though have gone down, from 3V 0.03w to 3V 0.01w. I assume that 30mA and 10mA?

    Does LED's/segment depend on the string length? I would assume 10cm spacing, 10LED's/segment 100cm segments 12 segments, roughly.

    Aussiephil has performed a lot of voltage current measurements on the 2010 Leds from BigW.

    His results have been posted over at forums.auschristmaslighting.com
