I've asked a similar question a few months ago, but I have a few more questions.
Background: I plan to chain multiple LED strips to one another (by soldering) to make one, long LED strip that will be hung up along the outline of my room. I do not currently know whether four LED strips will be enough to surround the entire room, but I purchased five just in case.
Power Supply - Not the exact item, but an identical one rated for 12 V and 25 A.
As you can see, the LED strip is rated at 12 V DC, and consumes 48 W per strip.
I had the opportunity to measure the current drawn from one strip at 12 V, and it reached almost 1 A.
Question: If I were to chain four or five of these strips together, would they be able to handle the amount of current drawn at 12 V? If not, would connecting wires to ground at each chain prevent too much current being drawn?
Note: I plan to supply each side of the long chain (four or five strips) with 12 V and not just one end.
