  • Most of ours only allow 3. It said on the box and also if you tried to plug more then 3 together it would blow the fuses in the lights themselves which are a pain to replace. We bought new ones that I think said 5 or 6 could be put together but after like 10 years of only being able to string 3 together I got used to that.

  • The box on your christmas lights should say how many strands you can use for that particular type. For example ours says up to 8 strands. They are outside lights.
