Design 5

Going with the 12v ws2815 strips means finding room for more battery than I anticipated.

6x li-ion 14500 batts to get enough amps to run it for a while.

That chews up a lot of space.

To make it work with 12v pretty much means going with 3x 14500 batts and the limited number mAh would appear to cut into the fun time significantly.

I can, just barely, according to AutoCAD, fit 9x 14500 batteries in there.  2,520 mAh if the Sanyo spec sheet is to be believed.

3x 16650 batts will fit and fit better!  2,500 mAh should give a decent amount of fun time.
