Help with battery powering 5m 12v LED strip Answered
So its Halloween time again and I decided to up the ante this year and make the Tron robe Jeff wears from the new movie. Costumes are nothing new to me, but I have almost no electrical skill. I've been googling and searching forums, but all the cases differ from mine, and I want to be 100% certain about my set up.
So first off, I have 5m of 12v Leds from here. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0085UPTT4/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00
I would like to battery power them for at least 2 hours at a time minimum, and I was considering splitting the strip into two 2.5 strips and putting a battery pack on each. But I know nothing about electricity and math has never been my strong suite for figuring amps and whatnot. I've heard that I will need a resistor and batteries weighing pounds to run just a few hours!
Help would be greatly appreciated.
