Stupid LED Xmas tree thing.

Stupid LED Xmas tree thing.

"'Er indoors" wants this up on the patio over the festive season...

I've disconnected the control gear from that Thorn Gamma 6 and used it's part-night photocell* to operate this monstrosity.
The blinking red LED visible on the photocell is just it complaining because I disconnected it. It takes a few dusk-dawn cycles to sort itself out.

*Got a load of 3-phase cable for free and I used it to wire the outside stuff so I had the possibility of doing stuff like that.

I see that you have better quality LED string. I have seen such LED strings that flicker badly

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Well, I think they are on AC. The transformer unit is potted so it might have a diode bridge inside.
