Ive purchased 1m of LED strip - it has 32 LED and from some research it seems like it uses 10 watts per meter.
P = VI , I = P /V
10 / 5 = 2 AMPS
Now, Essentially, I'm going to connect them on a circular plate type thing and put surface which diffuses light over the top of the strips.
I want to use the Arduino, but imagine just from a USB connection alone i can't get the 2Amps i need.
Do i just buy an adapter which outputs 5V and can give 2 Amps?
Im a bit confused how to run the strip if I'm not connecting it to the Arduino - I mean..I would have software to control each individual LED.
The strip ill be using is
