    Inexpensive garage lights from LED strips

    If you are talking about full lengths (5m), it does become an issue. Wire up a strip and power it from one end, and the LEDs at the far end are noticeably dimmer - there is a voltage drop. If you daisy chain a second or third 5m strip, they almost fail to light.I actually drive my long runs by soldering a wire into the middle of each strip - gives a few extra percent extra light without much extra cable !
