Hello Everyone,

I’m running (4) Reef Brites which are all 18 inches. I want to consolidate them to one power supply. I have (2) Actinic Lumi Lites, (1) 50/50 Lumi Lite and (1) Actinic Lumi Lite Pro. From what I gathered, max power output is about 20 watts at full power. I’m going to use the power supply below which is 144W. The power supply that came with each strip is 30W. I’ll use a splitter to distribute the power. Has anyone done this before? Thanks!

Nothing wrong with consolidating supplies, but do yourself a favor and buy a known supply from a manufacturer which puts a UL, CSA, or TUV safety mark on the product, and not a random half priced supply from the current consonant and vowel randomizer on Amazon.

Delta, Meanwell, Phi Hong, CUI (non exhaustive list) all make good quality power bricks.

Ok thanks I appreciate the feedback. I’m going to get a better quality brick. Do you suggest any good websites to buy a better quality power supply instead of trying to find a good one on Amazon?

Just go by numbers.

Pricey though and a din end to deal with.
