# LED strip in series

I am planning to order LED strips, I need to connect 6 x 5m LED strips in parallel so that they can be controlled via single controller, but am not sure if the controller will be able to handle the load or I need to do some modifications in the setup.

Controller specs:

In LED specs they have mentioned that each LED consumes 0.24W and there are 300 LEDs in a 5m strip. LED strip: http://s.aliexpress.com/y6vyUfQR

I am not quite sure how to get this setup done, help is greatly appreciated!

• Compare the current capability of your controller and compare with the sum of LED strips. And you will be connecting them in parallel, not series. – winny Apr 13 '18 at 19:59

$\frac{0.24}{V+}*300$ Amps
