How many strings of outdoor Christmas lights can I plug into one outlet?
Each string has 25 C-9 bulbs that is 175 Watts total. Each string has a 5 Amp fuse if that is important. The box says I can string together a maximum of 2 strings, which I have done. So, I am basically wanting/needing to plug in 12 total sets of strings into one outlet. I am wanting to make sure that this is safe. Any help would be very much appreciated!
Each string draws 5 amps. A standard breaker for household outlets is 30 amps. 12 strings x 5 amps would be 60 amps on one circuit if you plugged them all in together and into one plug.
I would plug three strings together but make sure they are plugged into an outlet that is on a different breaker than the other strings. You'll be safe that way. I hope that helps.
