Ok, so if I cut a strip into 2 x 1m pieces, what do I need to buy to provide power to both halves? I can't seem to find anything!

I don't think you can, you just shorten it to the length you want and discard the bit you cut off..... It's hard wired to the adaptor as far as I know.

Thats from reading it when I bought it, I didn't actually install it, an electrician did :-)

Ah ok, so you either use two metres of it or you have a load of wasted lights, that's a shame.

Thanks for the info!
