I have 6 strings of patio lights, each string with 10 bulbs. They can be plugged together like Christmas lights into a 60 bulb string. Each string is rated 9.6 watts (0.08 amps) and each string has a 3 amp fuse built into the plug.
To make the 60 bulb string more aesthetically pleasing, I would like to cut off the end plug/sockets and solder the strands together into one continuous line. This would leave just one 3 amp fuse at the start of the string.
Is this safe/legal? Is there a better/safer method of joining strands together?
