Using the same LED strip that went into the frame, I've cut off a group of 3 LEDs, soldered on a pair of wires, and used super glue to affix it to the bottom of the fan duct of the Hero Me.

The wires for this LED strip will be wired into the same connector as the LED strip from the frame.

To do this, I was able to crimp one wire and then carefully solder the second wire onto the pin. If you're careful with the solder you can still fit the crimped pin into the body.

The LEDs are the green and blue wires plugged into the Always on fan port. The photo only shows the single wire, and not the piggybacked double wire.

Alternatively, you could expose a small section of the main wire and solder the piggyback wire to that, or you could use a quick splice connector to join the two wires just before the plug.
