Second image is the power supply that came with it. They were in my room before I moved in. I'd like to extend the strip, and these are pretty good so if possible I wanted to get the same brand. If it's impossible to identify, anyone got any recommendations?

Im trying to power some LEDs with batteries. Would something like this work for a 16ft (300 leds) string of SMD 5050s like this? If so, approx how long?

Hi,

I like the idea of doing things my self, I think it gives me more control and leads to more satisfying results.

I'm trying to place multiple WS2812B strips around the room, each strip being apart from the other anywhere from 50-100cm. I figured most of the stuff, and went to amazon and added these items to my cart:

5M WS2812B led strip x2 https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07FVP54GQ/ref=ox_sc_act_image_4?smid=AA0YO4F2UD50F&psc=1

Mega 2560 controller https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B016JWNYBE/ref=ox_sc_act_image_3?smid=APU90DTITU5DG&psc=1

A 5v 10amps powersupply

Some male to male wires

Now, I want to know if this controller is enough to control 4-5 LED strips individually, or at least can I split the data to control all the 4 strips with the same signal?

On some tutorials, a capacitor (1000uf) was used, on others it was not. How do I know if it is necessary?

Can I smiply split all the wires going to one strip to 4 duplicates to power and control the 4 other strips?

An alternative method, my PC motherboard has a JRainbow RGB header, it has a 4 pin port (5v - DATA - nothing - GROUND) but it can only provide 5v 3A, Can I use my computer as a controller, and safely inject extra power to the LED strips via an external powersupply?

Your help is much appreciated.

Has anyone ever seen a foldable or bendable LED. I just saw a video from the MIT Media Lab called Bike Swarm and there’s an LED light on the down tube of the bike which looks like it might be a bendable or foldable type of light.

This seemed like the best group for this.

These strips are extremely high priced, but also very bright. Unfortunately, I'm unsure of what spec of lights to search for to find lights that are also individually addressable, if they even exist. Looking to do a small exterior project and would love super bright strips like this, but with full flexibility of individually addressing.

If no such thing exists, I get it, but I figured I'd ask.

Hey guys Im trying to get some LEDs working with a single, mobile power source. It says that the power source should be 12v. However it also says the same for a single strand of LEDs. Obviously more LEDs = more power needed. Im Just not sure how i should go about it. These are the strips i would like connected. It comes with a AC110-240V power supply. from what i can tell in the picture, the controller requires a 12v input, and outputs a current of 6amps (??? hard to read small font). So what kind of specs would I need on my power supply, and what are some options (Lith-ion, AA)?

Edit: maybe something like this or this(contains an ac/dc "adapter", would this be the power source, how does it charge?)
