Thats 7.2 A, assuming they're 12V, you need around 10 Ah, for every hour you want to run them.

They are 12v. Thanks for the help.
You can get Lithium packs, and chargers for that kind of load. This question came up a few weeks ago. Sadly there is no way to search for them !

Yeah I searched around for a while and didn't find anything so I just figured I would ask.
sealed lead acids would work, but they're heavy.
You will find your strips should be specified at "X amps per metre", or possibly per foot. What voltage are the strips ?

It says 1.2a. Per working/meter thanks
