Hi there, great post, and exactly what I was looking for. I need jumper wires, but I need them to be 10 feet long. I'm connecting one end to an LED strip, and the other end to a Raspberry Pi in the next room.

Any suggestions on the type of wire I should buy?

Thanks much,

Hi! Use one threaded copper wire, plastic coated, maybe ask your local reseller about this!
