    Different color Led connection

    by betterrun4show ·

    I just bought a couple of transparent acrilic shoeboxes to display my collection of shoes so I would like to connect different color of LED strip together to each shoebox without buying single color strip for each box since I have 20 shoeboxes ? and would really like to know how can I achieve this amazing idea ? I already have two 40 foot LED strip that as 15 different colors I can choose from with 2 remote and receiver… Can I cut a link size strip with the color I want and connect it to an other color strip? I know you have to put them in parallel with different resistors depending of the color… So how do I connect them together with the resistor and what is the resistor resistance reading are for each color…

    I’m a noob when it comes to this but can most definitely work my way to make it work if you guys explain it to me like I’m a child and don’t know JACK sh*t about it ahahaha that would be appreciated

      Sorry to be short to the answer but without the LED product specs and manual on use the answer is no to cutting this strip.

      The short answer is we have to read the product manual to see what it supports.
