  • 18 amps seems like a lot for those tiny little leads. I worry about a fire. Can someone please correct me if I’m just being too worried?

    Also, is there a common power supply people are using to drive this? I would rather not reinvent the wheel and fiddle with the power supply.

    My guess is that driving 18A on those tiny leads is a bad idea, so I’ll probably go with several of the 1M strips. Those can use a little under 4A. So even using this might not be enough: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11296 I may go with this on the 1M strips: http://www.mpja.com/5-Volt-Adapter-Power-Supply-4A-Cisco/productinfo/18464%20PS/

    Does anyone have any thoughts? Is there a good solution to driving all these? Thanks!!
