Setting up a Led light strip with 44key IR remote to a powerbank battery pack?

I am wanting to set up a 1M long RGB led light strip with a 44key IR remote with a working input voltage of 12V DC, working power of 36W/5M and 5A/5M, there are 60 LEDs/M. I would like to try to use my Duracell Power bank, that has an input and output of 5V dc and is a 2200mah batter pack. If I need to I can buy another battery pack, it needs to be smaller as its for a longboard for lights underneath, My main question is, Is this possible to set up? and what is the easiest Way to do it? Any help would be great, Thanks.

Sounds like it should easily work very well.

Unless the people who designed it were using the AC for some timing reason.

And you are sure it uses 12VDC ?

that is what it states, but I have another lightstrip without the 44key ir remote hooked up to a usb using the Duracell battery pack and it works fine.

Go for it.

BTW USB is 5VDC.
