Can you run the LightStrips on 12 volt electricity, as in a boat or RV?
I'm getting a boat and it would be really nice to use these to light it up beautifully inside. Boat-based color-changing LEDs are prohibitively expensive and don't seem to be as flexible in their operation.

In the product information overview it says "choose from over 16 million colors to set the mood". Is this actually the case?
People often through about the "16 million" figure, even in marketing literature. However this comes from number of distinct addressable colours in RGB with 8 bits a primary colour.
2^(3*8) = 2^24 = 16,777,216
Philips Hue technology does not use RGB rather a subspace of CIE. There are many colours in RGB space which cannot be produced by Philips Hue bulbs. There are also some colours which can be represented which do not map well to RGB. I'm sure there are a lot of colours, but how many?

Can the strip be "on" all the time, even when it's not outputting any light? I want to have this hidden and only control lighting from the iPhone App.
The problem is that I noticed in some unboxing videos that there's an on/off switch to control the light on/off. I want to control on/off remotely through the iPhone app (or the Logitech Ultimate which controls Hue light bulbs).

If I buy two or more, can I connect each other in sequence?
I need to do a 10m square, so I'll need 5 of those. And I need to know if I can connect one another.

40 watt=450 lumens, is 120 Lumens the maximum brightness?
Is there a setting that would be suitable for use in a vanity, to put on make-up for example, i.e. a setting consistent with natural sunlight, using the starter bulbs and or this strip? it's my understanding that white sunlight settings would be about 6000 lumens, am I missing something?

Does this strip runs on independent battery or do you need to connect it to a regular plug?
And if it's connected to a plug, than why did I saw on multiple source that you can cut it down to the size you want? Does that mean you effectively lose the other part that's no longer connected to power?
