Let's say you took all the lamps out of a 100w/120v Christmas light string and inserted them into the frame of a "Lite Bright" toy assembly. You than soldered circuits together by way of the lead in wires on each lamp so as to achieve series operation. How many lamps per series circuit would you have? How many circuits of lamps would you have than? What wattage and voltage do these lamps operate under? What's the total wattage of a 100 lamp string anyway? How many strings of 100 lamps is recommended to plug in to each other? If I have a tree with 12 strings of lamps, is it safe to plug them all together into the same add a plug plug/outlets or do I need to run Zip cord to how many strings of them? How many amps will these 12 strings eat up? How many zip cords are needed and what gauge of zip cord wire? Were in getting back to the "Lite Brite" assembly, say I wanted to make it a "shunt" type system, how would I go about it assuming the lamps of each circuit are right next to each other? Would resistors in parallel work on each lamp? What size resistor if that would do? What if I wanted to do one shunt per circuit, what size of resistor would than be required? This given a resistor would work in parallel for a in series circuit and other circuits fed off this in series circuit now powered by a resistor as path of least resistance by way of being wired in parallel. How do blinker lights work in controlling one’s Christmas lights? Merry Lite Brite Christmas. Have fun crawling under the tree to read the tags on your plugs. As a public service if nothing else others will recognize the important warning on the plugs or lights ow many strings can be powered off the same stacked plugs in it otherwise becoming a fire hazzard.
