It is easy to find yourself getting lazy on the things we all preach (referring to my employees) when it comes to LED. I have made it a point to make my people show me in writing how they decided to layout the wiring. They know how to calculate voltage drop, etc. The tendency was to keep connecting fixtures until one or more blink/dim. There is still voltage drop and the issues that go with it, but is easier on us with the broader voltage range.

That being said, we use 12/2 for our home runs and 16/2 for fixtures, not much change there. We just put more lights on a home run, and of course we use Lighting Shrink connectors exclusively.

We still do the basics, that doesn't change.
