Low voltage wire is used in many applications. We use it in LED setups to extend runs and avoid voltage drop when doing so. This wire is ideal for indoor or outdoor projects with our ColorBright RGB 150 Color Changing Series and ColorBright RGB 300 Color Changing Series.
The wire gauge is important when factoring in voltage drop because when putting 12v or 24v of electricity through a wire, the current will get weaker as it travels through the line. If you have a long run, the voltage at the end of that run will be lower which can cause the LED strips to look brighter at the beginning of the circuit and dimmer towards the end.
You can avoid this inconsistency by complying with the suggested max run lengths for each strip light (between 16-32ft). If you have a run longer than the stated maximums opting for a 24V strip over a 12V strip will help reduce voltage drop, additionally, the bigger the wire, the less resistance there is, limiting voltage drop.
We only carry 16 AWG or 18 AWG RGB low voltage wire and our connectors or pre-soldered leads are 22 AWG, still, you can connect the wire directly to the remote control receiver, splice it to the RGB connectors or leads with terminal blocks, crimp connectors or electrical tape.
