Questions & Answers for Philips Friends of Hue LightStrips
24 Questions from the Community
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?

I just purchased this strip and I am loving it so far. It does not run on an independent battery and needs to connect to an ac adapter / wall outlet.
Yes you can cut it down to the size you want...it is marked/scored every few inches to show where you can safely cut it. The downside to this is that you lose whatever you've cut and there doesn't seem to be any way to re-use or re-connect that portion. :(
Another thing I've noticed is that these strips aren't able to produce the warm/cool natural lighting temperatures found in some of the presets like 'relax, energize, etc'. So the LightStrips won't show up as another bulb to drag around in the orange/blue gradient.
Hope this helps!

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.
