Bought some LED festoon lights from Bunnings, “Lytworx” brand. The low voltage cable they run on has connectors at each end so you can connect additional sets to them. I need an extra length of just the cable, but now I’m not sure it exists. Can anyone identify from looking at this photo whether this is a standard connector type that I could find more of or if it’s proprietary?

Looks like a pretty standard M16 two-pin connector, of somewhat better quality than the usual frighteningly cheap and nasty clear-plastic Chinese ones but not as good-quality as the metal ones. You should be able to get them, but may have to solder up the cables yourself.

Check out ray wu's store on aliexpress. He has loads of options of connectors for waterproof LED lighting. I _think_ I saw that one on a premade cable there.


Freight can be aweful on his listings, ask and he will make a new one once he knows where its going. Otherwise you can often find the same thing from other sellers once you know what you need with cheaper freight.

One caveat for stuff coming out of China at the moment is that due to carriers significantly reducing flights in and out it could potentially take a long time for anything to arrive. Depends on how much of a hurry you're in, this is why I suggested DIY using local parts or something from Farnell or equivalent.
