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!

I'd suggest buying a power supply that should last longer than a year or 2. :(
PERSONAL opinion.
A wire caged Meanwell 24V, 150 watts should last longer than 2 years and costs $20.89
LRS-150-24

Bit more work building a wiring harness if you don't want to cut your light wires.

Ok thanks for the suggestion. I’ll check it out, and honestly my wire situation is kind of ridiculous. They’re WAY too long. Cutting the wires and making them more organized would certainly be a good thing.

There is a bunch I could consolidate, with me being all MXM. AI and Radion. It's like a Kraken alternative. I am going to do this after Christmas. I could go down from 5 brinks to one. I have an orbit, a xr15 blue gen 5, nero 5, Orbit 90 and 2 reefbrites. Do you have a link for the barrel connectors too?

Thanks
