Hey guys. I just purchased several of these led garage lights from HD.

shorturl.at/elFNS

They each have their own plug. I am wanting to cut the plug and wire them all together in series. The way I think I should do this is..

Plug to junction box > junction box to light & also wire out to next box > junction box to light & also wire out to next box > and this repeated until I have them all wired up. They should only pull .3 amps each, so by my calculations, six wired together should be fine for 12/2.

Do I have this right?

Hi
I think you may want to wire the lights in parallel rather than series I.e. live connected to live, neutral to neutral. Series would be a Xmas tree light configuration and would be live connected to neutral between the lights. I don't think series connection is a recommended way of connecting and if 1 of the bulbs fails the other will also go off
