  • I have purchased the Purple,Orange, Yellow and Warm White versions of these strands. I noticed issues with resistors overheating at 5V on one strand of Purple. I split these into 5 M segments for a project and during resistance probing determined one section had a short. Subsequent testing by halving the string until I found the problem area revealed a short near the end of the line(fun). So check for shorts if you are having issues with dim lights at 5 V.. Also note every strand has a soldered splice in the middle indicating these are really manufactured as 2x5 meter segments . Furthermore, one strand was actually 4 sections with the splices in various places but still one in the exact middle. Hope this helps.

  • What strength resistor comes with these purple lights? If I cut the string down in length, should I change the resistance? How can I calculate what strength resistor to use? Thanks in advance.

  • So you can not make these lights blink slow or fast?

  • Are these real purple and not UV? If so are there UV ones available? I could use some!

    • Just purple. We don’t have any UV right now, sorry!

      • I have found blue and purple LEDs both make fluorescent pigments fluoresce, but there is a lot of variability between manufacturers and background lighting conditions are important to the overall effect.
