I have a handful of blue LED light that come in strips with a red and black wire from them.

I want to run them from my fuse box and I bought a fuse thingy to run the power (red) wire to....but I think I need some sort of port to run all the different strips of LED lights to (via each on of their red and black wires - I have about 6 strips).


Walmart sells a 12 volt power port, but you have to plug it in to your cigarette lighter - that's bulky and tacky to me among other things (takes away that port for my radar, or phone charger, etc).

It looks like this:

I'm having a hard time finding info on how to do this.


Help please? :frown:

The thing is simple don't waste your time on doing experiments/own thinking. Just visit your nearest electrician/mechanic for better solution for your car. In this way you can save your time as well as your car. thank you

As mentioned above, this is a pretty simple project. Depending on the number of lights you're planning to use and the current draw, the difficulty gets moderately higher and may require a relay.

If you're looking to run the lights when the headlights are on, then wiring in to a fused circuit for the radio backlighting, etc. would be pretty simple.
