The 12V bulbs can get hot to the touch, but I've never had a power strip heat up. You should be fine -- just make sure any splices in the wires are well covered with shrink-tubing.


Thank you.

Like Brae says, the bulbs can get hot to the touch. You will want to have access to the strip in case any of the plugs are loose... the connections sometimes don't "fit" well and need jiggling! And also make sure the spliced wires "splices" are a little separated, although the polarity doesn't matter the way LED's do. Also make sure the number of lamps you have matches the size of the transformer....... I think they list the right sizes in the HBS catalogs. Good luck! :)


Good advice - I had the same questions!
