What is the best way to plug 12v LED rope light in to a wall socket? Answered

I recently got my hands on some 12v 1a 1/2" rope light that I want to be able to plug in to a normal wall socket. I've looked around for adapters but the only thing I've found is generic 12v 1a ac adapters. My question then is: what is the best way to plug the lights in to the wall? Buy the generic ones and wire them to the lights myself?

You definitely need to use a 12V DC 1A  Wall Wart to power the rope light !

Here is a pointer to a desk 12V 1.65A supply.

Yes, but won't this light need DC ?
