the package says not to connect copper & aluminum wires. What is the reason for this? What other product is available to connect aluminum wire & copper in an outdoor patio light?

Answer: 
1)A chemical reaction takes place that causes them to oxidize which causes a high-resistant connection to develop with an unwanted voltage drop across the connection which leads to three potential problems: low voltage resulting in equipment damage, wasted energy and poor efficiency -- and worse, the connection heats up and can contribute to a fire at high-ampere loads.

1)A chemical reaction takes place that causes them to oxidize which causes a high-resistant connection to develop with an unwanted voltage drop across the connection which leads to three potential problems: low voltage resulting in equipment damage, wasted energy and poor efficiency -- and worse, the connection heats up and can contribute to a fire at high-ampere loads.
2)Aluminum and copper do not expand and contract at the same rates as they heat up and cool down. This difference can cause wire splices or connections to work loose,causing arc faults, arc flash and fires in electrical systems.
3)Connectors identified with a "Cu/Al" splice contain a chemical compound that combats the oxidation & connectors marked as "Cu" should NEVER be used on a Copper/Aluminum splice or the other above WILL occur.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Most helpful employees The product did exactly what I needed it to do, but it was the employees in the electrical department, who guided me to the right products, that deserve recognition. I installed outdoor low voltage path lights for the very first time. I did the job entirely on my own, but that would not have been possible if the expert employees at Home Depot had not steered me to the correct products that I needed to complete the job. Thank you, Home Depot- mostly at your Indian Bend location in Scottsdale but I find them friendly and very helpful at whatever I store I go to! February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works as intended Use this product in any installation where wiring might get corroded, such as any application near the ocean or in damp areas. This product will save you the headache of having to redo work looking for bad connections. June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for sprinkler wire connectios These are very convenient for connecting sprinkler zone wiring below ground to keep connections from corroding January 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for outdoor use I used these for my outdoor sprinkler valve connections and they were easy to install. December 2, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by They do the job These waterproof connectors do exactly what they're meant to do and seem like they will last outdoors in cold weather. Only comment I have is I would have liked either deeper grooves or a wider flat area for gripping so that they'd be easier to twist on to the wires. Once the silicone grease starts leaking out, they get very slippery and hard to tighten unless you keep wiping off your fingers. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Waterproof Wire Connectors I have used these in all of my outside low voltage lighting and they work great. Several years of usage and no problems. The original push and click would eventuality fail, but these are great. The only caveat is the are not reusable. Small price for a great product. December 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great little connector Used these for trailer connection inside junction box. Ideal September 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Used on irrigation system, flawless, easy to use This item did what it says it will....makes water resistant electrical connections. Great product for the application I used it for. August 18, 2015
