  • Actually this stuff is only available in up to 1.5m lengths, its because they are 5v w/ 9w per meter or about 2.7 amps at 1.5m lengths, I'm guessing the substrate can't deal with more than that. If you look at the demo image you'll see that all those strips are powered in parallel.
    I'm doing a project with 12m lengths that are 8 strips in series for data but I have to supply power every 3 meters which means running some heavier gauge wire a long with the strip. You'll see they also break off the data and power into two different connectors, data has a male at one end and female at the other, power only has male and only on one side. You're only allowed to chain data, not power.

No public wish lists :(
