Does the wire come with the prongs to attach to the transformer or must the end be stripped? This is for low voltage LED landscape lighting project.
Asked by: Moose
You have to strip the wire to attach it to the transformer.

12/200 wiring cable

Hi there, I need to know if I can just set up the cable over the landscaping without covering through any pvc pipeline. I need to install around 650 linear feet of cable in my backyard with no protection to the elements. let me know if this is ok please. thank you.
Asked by: RICK
this is direct bury cable and it is UV stabilized black, so no conduit required, however I have had rodents shewing on the energized wires if they are not buried. I also find that at that length of straight run, the last lights in the chain are not as bright as the ones closest to the transformer. I often will wire in a loop to avoid the dimming on the end.

500 ft. 16/2 Black Stranded CU Low-Voltage Landscape Lighting Wire is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44.

It seems expensive to me but I am not an expert in wire. The wire itself is well insulated and comes on a metal spool which is nice because the product is 24 pounds,. I had no issues with laying it out on the ground as I was working on the layout. It did not curl or fight me. The vampire connectors that come with the lighting fixtures worked to pierce the wire 100% of the time. I had no problems with the wire at all. Note: I used all LED fixtures so I cannot comment on voltage drops. Although I used about 400 feet of cable my longest run was about 100 foot.

I used this to wire the transformer to my gate battery and also to connect a doorbell button up at the house so I can operate the gate from the house without having to go out to the car and use the remote. Wire is great, especially for the price. I don't know about the reviews claiming problems with splitting and stripping the wire. I had no trouble at all and I installed it in 30 degree temps.
