I've got a strip of LED lights that requires a 60V supply with 200mA of draw (15w). I am curious what would be required to get this to run off a significantly smaller voltage source (i.e. USB) I don't believe a traditional USB charger would work as they are 5V/1A and there is no way to turn that into 15W but if I had a USB C battery pack that was able to deliver >15W is it possible to use a step up converter to power this strip? Or a couple of 18650 batteries?
I've looked at TI's simple switcher site and it is suggesting the LM2587/LM2588 as a way of turning ~5V into 60V at 200mA. Are there more gotchas that I am missing?
The LED strip is from something like this. Our office recently got an upgrade and a few fell off a truck for experimentation.
