@Makuna it turns out that with my strip, even if you supply 5v at one end, it will lose too much voltage at the other. So you just can't run the full 5m supplied from one end

I can't find the link, but most can only run about 2m, this is why they power from center, or cut the power line in the center and power from both ends.
