    I purchased several sets of Noma LED Faceted C7 - 50 light sets to
    decorate a large tree I have. I realize these lights aren't as bright
    as the traditional C7 lights, however they are supposed to last 25 times
    as long as a traditional set (according to the box) and use far less
    electricity (2.4W for 50 lights vs. 124.8W for a 25 light traditional
    set. I figured I'd give them a try. The strings can be connected end
    to end, however there is a warning label on one end which states not to
    connect more than 3 strands together at a time. My question is: Why
    can't I connect more than three 2.4 watt strands together? If I hooked
    10 strands together, I would only be using 24 watts of power total, not
    enough to blow a fuse or over heat the wiring. Does anybody know the
    answer to this question?

    Thank You,

    My traditional strings say the same thing. Maybe supplier just didn't bother
    to change the label
