Can anyone that uses this light controller recommend bulk wire for connecting the LED's ?

I'm thinking 22 or 24 AWG stranded copper 2 conductor twisted sheath and preferably as light in weight as possible. I've googled every combination I can think of including hobby / science bulk wire spool but not coming up with anything. Finding the occasional 1000' roll but 50-100' would be more than enough. Silicone insulated maybe ?

Any recommendations or suggestions appreciated !

lots of assembly required

Thanks Grimracer

Had thought about phone wire but wasn't sure if it would handle up to a 1 amp load. I was thinking it was typically more around 28-30 gauge but apparently it can be had in heavier gauges. I suppose if it's used on a low duty cycle circuit, the lighter gauge would hold up fine.

Appreciate your input !

just do a search on eBay for 22 ga or 24 ga wire, you can get 100' roles or you can even find 3 wire servo wire that can be used as well from Hobby King for cheap.
