Q: Can I hook up two 12 inch led stripes to a 9v small square battery? I see an earlier comment that said you can cut and hook up to 2AA batteries. If not, can your company make this type of product?

Q: What is the easiest way to change out a strip? I moved to another state and they do not allow the blue I currently have. Is there an easy way to cut and splice the wires at the strip without using bulky crimp connectors? - by Jim (Boca Raton Fla)
A: The least bulky splice I can think of involves solder and heat shrink. Its not necessarily the easiest, unless of course you're comfortable with the methods and tools. The easiest is probably a simple crimp connector.

Made you a nice diagram:

I am not a techno-wiz!!)!! Thanks - by VMom
A: These can easily be hooked up using batteries, either AA or 27A and battery packs [https://www.oznium.com/install-bay/12v-led-battery-holder]. If you need more ideas our Forum might be of assistance.
Q: How many amps do they us and can i us ten amp inline fuse for my 2.4 leds - by adamgares (Bellevue, NE)
A: The pulled amps vary on the length used and color. The information for this can be found on our Technical Information page: https://www.oznium.com/flexible-led-strips/led-flex-strips#tech . One 2.4" strip pulls between 14-27mA. That means .014-.027 Amps. Ten amp fuse would be extremely to large. I suggest a 2-3 amp fuse at most.

Q: If i have 5 separate Million color strips. Can they be wired so that they are the same color when they change or will 5 strips be 5 different colors? - by joe

Q: Does each set of lights have to be wired directly to a switch or can they be connected in series with the closest light set connected to the switch? What kind of switch do you recommend? - by Jim (Frisco, TX)
A: You can hook up multiple LEDs to one switch.

They shouldn't be wired in series though. They should be wired in parallel.

The round rocker switch is a popular choice.
Q: i want them on a raptor 700r as headlights how long should the flexible led strip be to do the best performance and how do i mount them - by ivan (brooklyn new york)
