Can you run the LightStrips on 12 volt electricity, as in a boat or RV?

I'm getting a boat and it would be really nice to use these to light it up beautifully inside. Boat-based color-changing LEDs are prohibitively expensive and don't seem to be as flexible in their operation.

    If you use a power inverter, you should be able to use the lightstrips with a 12 volt power source. However, none if the Hue lights (Lightstrips included) are rated for outdoor use. Thus, you'd have to use them inside the cabin, if you have one, not outside.
