How many LED rope lights can be connected together?

  1. People regularly ask”How Many Christmas Lights Can I String Together?”
  2. Each major country and region corresponds to different power led rope lights products. Take 2 wire led rope lights and 3wire rope lights of mikoo leds company as an example.
Regional power specifications 2 wire led rope light

LED power 1.8W/m

3 wire led rope light

LEDpower 2.44W/m

The 110V voltage with 15amps circuit breaker can simultaneously light up 6 groups of led light belts, each group of maximum series of 116 meters,( each group of light belts corresponding to a socket) can light up 6 groups of led light belts, each group of maximum series of 86 meters, (each group of light belts corresponding to a socket)
The 110V voltage

With 20amps circuit breaker

can simultaneously light up 9 groups of led light belts, each group of maximum series 116m, (each group of light belts corresponding to a socket) can light up 6 groups of led light belts, each group of maximum series 86m, (each group of light belts corresponding to a socket)
The 220V voltage with 16amps circuit breaker can simultaneously light up 12 groups of led light belts, each group of maximum series of 116 meters, (each group of light belts corresponding to a socket) can simultaneously light up 6 groups of led light belts, each group of maximum series of 86 meters, (each group of light belts corresponding to a socket)

 

  1. How many meters can the led light belt be connected? This is determined by the power supply you use, but also related to the power consumption of your lamp belt, your power supply power, you can be more connected, small power, can only be less connected.
  2. If you have an 8 watt/meter light strip and a 10 watt power supply, you can only connect 1 meter; If your power supply is 50 watts, then you can only connect 6 meters.
  3. Ensure that the voltage of the power supply is consistent with that of the indicator belt. Also note that the power is too large, the lamp belt can not be piled together, too dense will make the temperature concentrated overheating.。
  4. Take the following product as an example:

Mikoo led rope light specificationMikoo led rope light technical

 

The product has a power of 1.8 watts per meter

The following is calculated according to the specifications of household electricity supply in different countries and regions:

  • North America: A single outlet can connect 116 meters In North America. A single circuit breaker can support up to 9 outlets for a total of 1,050 meters.
  • In North America, the voltage used for lighting and regular outlets in a home is 110V, and a circuit breaker for modern residential lighting and general purpose use in the United States is primarily 20 amps (the explanatory label on the circuit breaker will tell you the exact number). Your 20-amp circuit will now be able to safely withstand a total of 2200 watts (20 Amps x 110 volts), with a maximum practical capacity of 1920 watts. 1920/210=9 SETS (A set of connected Christmas lights should not exceed 210 watts of power. This is the result of the UL standards that electrical products follow, whether indoor or outdoor.) 210/1.8=116 meters, 116*9=1000 meters (product power is 1.8 watts per meter, rounded results)
  • EU: A single outlet can connect 116 meters In the EU. A single circuit breaker can support up to 9 outlets for a total of 1,050 meters
  • The voltage used for lighting and regular outlets in a home is 220V, and circuit breakers used for modern residential lighting and general purposes in the EU are mostly 16 amps (the explanatory label on the circuit breaker tells you the exact number). Your 16-amp circuit in your home will now be able to safely withstand a total of 3520 watts of power (16 Amps x 220 volts), 80% of which has a maximum capacity of 2816 watts. 2816/210=13 sets (A set of connected Christmas lights should not exceed 210 watts of power. This is the result of the UL standards that electrical products follow, whether indoor or outdoor.) 210/1.8=116 meters, 116*13=1500 meters (product power is 1.8 watts per meter, results rounded).。
  • Note: If you’re using different types and brands of lights, you’ll need to figure out the full wattage combination used to find the number of strands you can safely string together. The same goes for using outlets with other household appliances, which is why we always recommend using dedicated “Christmas lights only” outlets.。
