How much power do I need for LEDs/RGB Modules/Nodes/Strip/RGB Elements?

For some of our RGB products (CoroFlake, NorthStar, etc), we sell an RGB package which includes the correct number of power supplies neccessary for that project.  If you will be using your own power supply with our RGB lights, you will need to calculate the required power for your specific project.
 
Here are numbers of HolidayCoro items that can be run from our 12v waterproof power supply:
