    Depends on your PSU rating. They take about 3 watts each im told, so not that much.

    you dont have to have them all in line using those pass through connectors, you could just wire them all into one power connector or onto a switch, then it would keep the wiring neater too.

    Yeah, theoretically you should just be able to keep adding them until the psu can no longer cope, but I would say thats going to be a damn lot of cathodes :)

    but as cathodes are so bright - why use so many?

    sounds nuts to me

    you'll run out of places to put them before you run out of power.

    think about it.
