Get This Look: Lighting wreaths without an outlet

November 28, 2021

A customer recently left a review about how 12-volt lights plus an alligator to accessory socket adapter was used to light an outdoor subdivision sign. We hear from quite a few folks looking for a solution to this type of installation problem, so we thought we’d share it.

Great for Solar Powered Wreaths

We have an entrance sign to our subdivision with lighting supplied by a small 12V DC solar system. For the holidays we added two wreaths each wrapped with a 12 Volt LED Warm White Light Sets. The additional current draw is about 300 mA, which is very manageable, with our system. We weren’t sure if one or two strings would be needed per wreath, but a quick email from Christmas Light Source indicated that one would be sufficient. Sure enough, the lights look great. To connect the lights we bought two Cigarette Lighter Female Sockets from Amazon and wired them in parallel to the solar system.
