See the discussion about generic/replacement LED strips here--
My solution to awning lights
FYI, here is a link to the one's I bought--
5M Roll 3528 SMD Waterproof 60 LEDs/M 300 LEDs Warm Cool White Red Green Blue Yellow RGB Flexible LED Strip Light Free Shipping-in LED Strips from Lights & Lighting on Aliexpress.com
$8.75 per roll, including shipping from China. Typically takes about 3 weeks
to arrive US via USPS signature required mail.
They ship to Canada also.
These are 5 meters/16.4 feet long with 300 leds per set.
They can be cut into shorter length but I'm gonna guess you only can
get 2 usable pieces if you cut them as there are connections wired on
each end. If you cut more than 2 pieces you have a center piece with
no connection pigtails.
No controller needed for single color.
I have ordered several items thru this "china version of ebay" and have
had no problems.
