    Hi everyone, im a bit of a newbie to electronics and need some help with wiring up my degree show work....

    So I have 20 single superflux led modules (bought as a chain with 20awg cable) and a 12v d/c adapter and want to link the modules in parallel. ie. 10 chains of 2 modules running out of the same power supply.

    So I'm basically asking, where can i get a suitable splitter-junction box(?) and how can i do this? (safely!)

    Have asked local electronics store and tutors but no-one has been able to help!

    Thanks! :)

    You aren't likely to find a ready made set of connectors for a custom job. Get your soldering iron out and start making connections. While you're at it, make sure the 12v supply can feed that many LEDs and be sure you know how to limit the current to each LED with resistors.

    We'll need more information about the current rating and voltage rating for the diodes and power supply to provide more answers.
