    the DC cord I used was from one of my DC adapter floating around & this plugs into the white control box , 12VDC power supply. So you don't cut anything on the light side.
    4 separate runs, each individual run is going to require a control box.
    James, take a look at my video posted above, you'll see the white control box I'm talking about.
    Got it. I’m clear now, thanks for all the help Joon!

        Just came across this. I like this a lot. It just got added to my "quick projects" list. Unfortunatly each run is only about 7' long and these seem to only come in 16' or longer.

          They can be cut every 3 inches I think. But they can be cut. They are made to connect to another 16' strip. With that being said, there is a connection on both ends, so if you cut them in half, you have 2 rope lights out of 1 16'. You'll just need to buy another power connecter to power the other strip

            If only reusing the second half were that easy. One end of the light strip is male and the other female, assuming you can buy another control module and power supply the control module wouldn't plug into the opposite end without modification.

              I’ve purchased many led strips at different times from different websites and ALL of them come with a small double male connector pin to connect multiple strings. I googled LED strip double male connector. You can buy these or check your packaging. I use the connector and heat sharing tubing with the glue to seal and hold the connection together.

                Thanks for the tip. I’ll investigate the control module and power supply to see if it’s cheaper than just buying two complete strips.
