How to run 5m intelligent LED strip via battery pack (portable power)? Answered
Hello - I would like to apply this (or similar) LED strip to a costume:
Is there a way to run this via battery power? It needs to be 6 lbs. or under, so it can be strapped underneath a garment. I've looked at soooo many types of portable power sources & battery packs now, I'm thoroughly confused as to how to determine power needs if I want this to run 4-5 hours (at least). Some battery packs seem like they might run it for a while, but I am not sure of how to make a connection properly (and what kind of connectors I need), and risk the battery exploding. I will be wearing this, so safety is an issue. Am I dreaming, or is this possible? Please help, and thanks!
Also, cost is an issue... the cheaper the better!
