LED Light Strips - COnnectors

I see only the 4’ connector strip available, are there plans to add shorter connector strips soon?
How are others connecting the strips in use cases like multiple shelves of a bookcase where the spans are shorter.

Some people are modifying the cables to shorten them. It’s basically heat shrink over some pins/sockets.


Just to make sure we’re on the same page, it looks like the 4’ connector strip is just an extension for power, the led strips themselves are in 6" and 1’ lengths so you’ve got a bit more flexibility in the actual lit strips and how you want those set up.

I think most people are just shortening cables where they need, etc, depends how comfortable you are with that.

We are on the same page, just the extension for power. I have not done such work before but would not be unwilling to learn. It would depend on the experiences of others with the LED strips.

Ok cool :slight_smile: As far as learning, looks like may just be some picking up on soldering, etc… @nappyjim may be able to confirm but that’s all he mentioned here -

I haven’t taken the leap to actually pick the LED strips up myself yet, need to redo my kitchen first and then measure it all out to figure out what I’ll need.

If you’re interested in making your own connections I can confirm that these https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M6DWK4Z/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_FVGWNNXYNDZMXV3V4R25?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 and these will work with Inovelli strips https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087PK4GDY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_B2AVEA4T2G2PE0MGR76P?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1. I purchased several 4’ extension strips from Inovelli and shortened them to 1ft lengths. Soldering these is a real pain because of how close together the pins are but it’s possible. You can also buy other 6 pin extension cables on amazon that should work.
