  • Cutting and reconnecting Hue Light strip Plus segments

    This was my problem too. I tried multiple solder irons and couldn't get the solder to even puddle, which is why I went with the solution I did. I wish I had a better suggestion.

    I believe RyanA28 was asking about what I did and removed the heat shrink from the power supply wiring. I did not end up cutting the strips, but just rather removed the heat shrink around the power connector going to the strip and relocated it to a shorter separate strip.

    Yes I was able to do that, and you shouldn't have a problem doing what you mentioned.

    Here's the direct links to the cables.https://www.amazon.com/Extension-Cable-Philips-Lig...https://www.amazon.com/Extension-Cable-Philips-Lig...

    Well I tried to do this, but was unable to get the solder to melt. I needed 3 meter sections for my project and what I ended up doing is cutting the heat shrink off the 6 meter section and the connector came off so I ended up getting two 3 meter extensions.Also, I found these extension cables handy. I was going to cut one in half and solder the wires to the LED strip so they could be connected & disconnected as needed.https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=bl_dp_s_web_0?ie=UTF8&search-alias=aps&field-keywords=Litcessory+%28Philips+Compatible%29
