Power plug is getting really hot

Hey guys,

I have a 5 meter led strip SK6812 NW connected to a 5v 5A power supply on both ends to the led strip. There is also a fuse on both connections.

When i set the brightness to 100% the power plug is getting really hot and i think it will melt if i don’t lower the brightness.

Do you know what can cause this?
Thanks in advance!

Yes, those connectors are generally only rated for 3A, if that. Cut connector off and connect the wires directly.


Thanks, I give it a try!
