    Thanks for the Q&A here. I purchased a 164 ft RGB 5050 waterproof 110V strip from LE. I've cut it into 3 40 ft lengths that I'm powering with 3 110v controllers. I want to run 3 RGB extensions that will be 20 ft between each controller and the light strip it controls. I've calculated each strip at 1.65 amps. Can I safely use the standard 22 gauge RGB stranded extension wire commonly found on Amazon and Ebay for 12-24v led strips? If not what should I use? Thank you. FYI the lights are for a three teared 40' long planter wall along our front walk. The top rail of each tier is a 4x6 pressure treated timber horazontaly attached to the top of each planter wall that I routed a 5/16 channel 5/16 deep the 40 ft length of the walk X 3. I hot glued the strip lights into the channel. The ligh...

I hot glued the strip lights into the channel. The lights face down and are concealed by being in the channel and below the line of sight. Looks fantastic when lit and 100% concealed when not.My only issue besides finding the appropriate extension is the Hot Glue has separated from the light strip in a few places. I'm now researching glue sticks for one that will better bond to the synthetic waterproof cover on these lights.
