I don't think it matters on a ligt bulb
because it just takes the power and turns it into light

You must put the bulbs in parallel. If you don't it won't discharge at about 2 amps per 1157 bulb used. It will discharge at a MUCH lower amperage.

parallel is the only way you should solder the bulbs to make a 20 ampere (for 10 pcs 2 ampere 12 volt bulbs) discharger. if you solder it in series, the volts would add up, and i think the bulbs wouldnt light at all.
