**Hello everyone !
Let me just get started by saying that I have no experience with all "this" ,Im a noob. I am wanting to start a project, I want to make an LED Hula Hoop. I found the Blinkytape to be one of the best options for a led strip since you can personalize patterns for light painting and all that. Also I like that its basically ready to go.
Anyway, I understand that it needs a power supply .. for some reason I thought you could just charge it and I could slip it into the hula hoop. So I need a power supply that will fit in a 3/4 hula hoop for the blinkytape.
Since its 5V its getting a bit difficult for me when it comes to power supplies that will fit into a tube. I want to be able to recharge the hoop , I would like to power it with a lithium battery but most of them that would fit into the hoop are 3.7 V.
I found a 5V regulated usb power output that can be connected to the battery that is 3.7V and then this set up to be connected to the blinkytape ( simple enough to do it myself) . But does it power 5V to the blinkytape? I am confused . Would this work ?
Thank you very much for the help in advanced !
