Wireless power is doable as long as your device is only a few centimeters from the power source. I think what you want is to run them off batteries. It runs off 12V DC. So all you need is a 12V battery with the ability to supply the 36W the strip need for a reasonable time. So chances are the batteries will be fairly heavy.

Any 12V battery or combination of batteries to give you 12V will work. The question is how long it will last. You could use 8x AA, AAA, C or D batteries but they won't last vary long having to supply 3A to the lights. If you can find a sutable lithium-ion battery that may be your best bet.

something like this would work? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007RQW5WG/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
