Male Speaker: Hello. This video is brought to you by leddistributors.net. Cutting led flex strip and adding connecting wires is easy to do. If you look closely at the strip about every two inches there is a line that can be cut. Between the two lines is a complete circuit, so you can have a strip as small as two inches or as long as 48 feet with the correct power supply. If you look closely, you'll notice a positive and negative sign. You'll be able to light the LED strip by applying current to these points. Remember, LED's are dial so polarity is important. Make sure that your positive current goes to the positive point on the strip. If the strip doesn't light, then reverse your connections and you should be okay.
So, let's go ahead and cut the strip. There you go. Now, you have two separate sections of the strip, which can be used individually or it can be connected as we are going to do here. Now, you'll need to sorter your wire to the connecting circles that you see here. These circles are made of copper, so the sorter will lead here to these circles once you sorter them. Once you've made your connections and all your sorter points are finished, you are ready to plug in to your power supply. Flex strip uses 12 volt DC, so we are using an AC adaptor for this project. There you go.
So, now you can light two separate locations with a LED flex strip. You can light individual sections of under cabinet in the kitchen or maybe a collection of picture frames on the wall or whatever are their projects you can think of. So, thank you and please visit our website at ledditributors.net for LED flex strip as well as other LED lighting products.
