I bought a cheapy typical dollar store strip multi-connecter and I have a orange extention cord which is connected from the wall to the multi-connector which has (2) 6' Fan's (1) 12v plug from the CPU Fans (1) floro light 65 watts, thats 4 plugs I got connected to the multi-connector. Okay, I bought another light fixture the same size and wattage and when first tested it in the kitchen it worked fine but when I finshed setting it up in the grow box it would not turn on. So I pluged another extention cord to it and it still didn't turn on. So I took it out and it turned on again in the kitchen, I started to think maybe it was too much power for the multi-connector. Tommrow I wanna head down to home depot and get a heavy duty surge protector to connect all my stuff. was that the problem or what??????????Please someone reply soon.........
