    Very good job, I never thought anything like it.
    How many LEDs per meter is 30 or 60 / m? It seems 30 and 3825 smd.
    What recomendas power supply led me to strip smd 5050 60 leds per meter?
    Thank you

    12v 1200mah power supply per meter

    Thank you very very much

    Nice idea and pix, but not enough info. Please include detailed step-by-step directions and the specific parts you used to make this.

    Just put 12V adapter inside CFL case, from it's size I guess max 1A rated but even 500mah would be enough, pretty much common type. LED strips work on 12V directly since they have built-in resistors. +12-----|>---|>---|>---/\/\/\/\/\------0 if you dont cut, each pack of 3 is connected in parallel with others. So if you wrap 60LEDs it makes 20 packs in parallel. Assuming each draw 20mah 20*0.02A=400mah. See?

    Where do you determine 110V or 220V.
