Well since we got the new light strings set from the USA they are made to run on 110V. As most of you know here in Europe we run on 220V. The good thing about the USA lights is, that the wires used in them can withstand 300V so by making the 100 lights run in series instead of 50 and 50 I can then hook them up directly to our 220V without frying them out. Another added benefit to that is, that I can hook 5 strings together instead of only 3 like in the USA.

So for me that means cutting, stripping, and soldering 60 sets of lights. But what is a balcony for, right?
