This quality garden lighting cable by Olex is used to connect your 12V garden lights to a transformer and/or each other. We have various sizes to suit your own individual lighting set up.
Choosing the right cable for your lighting system is vitally important. If you undersize, the cable can heat up & not only cause your lights to fail, but can be a fire hazard. If you need any help, we have some more information and advice on our Product Guides page which inlcudes Garden Lighting information.

Can I just use electrical tape on my cable joins?
Being exposed to the weather, water damage will occur any where water can get in. Electrical tape isn’t quite water tight & over time water will creep into the circuit & create havoc & void all warranties. For this reason you should always use waterproof cable joins like heat shrinks.
Do I need an electrician to set up my 12v garden lights?
No, you do not need an electrician to install 12v garden lights. Transformers plug straight into a powerpoint & all of the 12v components are safe for DIY installation.
Is it safe to run my lighting cable through the garden bed?
Yes, all 12v Garden lighting cable is safe to run in the garden bed, it doesn’t need to buried for any regulations’ sake. If you’re concerned the cable might incidentally get damaged, we then recommend you run it in some conduit or PVC pipe.
What size cable do I need?
Cable sizing is different for each situation & is determined by a number of factors: The number of lights & wattage of each light & their distance from the power supply. We go into more detail in our Product Guides, but it’s important not to undersize for both safety & effective operation.
