    i call it "X-connect"

    here it is :

    Behind the Innovation:-
    Being an avid modder, i often faced the challenge of managing the enormous amount of wires that result from attaching different mods like fans, lights controllers etc. All of them need to be individually connected to power. This results in a huge mess.

    So i did some brainstorming and came up with a possible way to effectively reduce the clutter.



    Introducing For The First Time : X-Connecting LED lighting systems for PC cases!


    The Design

    The Product
    The Product will be available in the following specifications:-


    LED Strip length: 6"
    Wire lengths : 6" or 9" or none (depending on user preference)
    No. of LEDs: 3x3= 9 High intensity LEDs
    Type of connection:-
    Input: 3 pin female at end of wire.
    Output (to another strip): 3 pin male.
    Colors Available: Blue, White, Red , Green (cannot confirm on the availability of all the colors at hand, as it will depend on demand)

    I have decided on the length of 9" as this will fit most cases both in length and in depth, so one size does it all.
    Nevertheless, specific lengths can be made according to the clients will, but it will come with a premium fee.

    The Thing that sets it apart! inter-connectible jacks!

    Hope this product will be accepted in the modding community :)

    Cool so you can chain them together? It would be interesting to see what I could co with them on my m-cubed tbalancer fan controller.

    at first I thought it was a massive 3 pin splitter, with multiple jacks to connect multiple fans etc. like a multi socket adapter. (maybe an idea for future). make sure you file patent/copyright.

    and good luck, it may catch on and I hope it does.

    What about a 4 pin version so you can control the brightness with the PWM signal? then your computer will get brighter the hotter it gets and the faster the fans a turning or you could have the LEDs come on sequentially so you know how fast your fans are going.

    Yes, i do use that exact reel.... but if you notice Kreij i ahve attatched interlocking jacks on the ends of them, so that you can go on adding as many as you want to a line. you wont need to get a power splitter for this :)


    Oh did i mention this will be less than 2.5$ for the unsleeved one?


    but i dont suppose i will go international right away hehe

    all in good time. :)

    np :p

    Let me know when you need a US distributor.
    Did I mention I'll want exclusive sales rights in the US? ;)

    He's the only one that will be able to retail sell it in the US.
    Saw this on your FB page, looks good!
    If you need a retailer for Australia in the near future, I may be setting up an online modding/wc store soon there.

    if pricing is right, i know i can sell this in my country, even my simple homemade led always sold out..
    btw..maybe you have experience of masking the LED to get different shade of color, like softer red/pink, brown/copperish..or something like that.. :)

    PM me if you have few sample :D
