    I want a white, 30′ exterior strip (tape) light I can attach in a wall recess to illuminate a walkway and want to operate it from a 110 exterior outlet. I see you have one that operates on 12v; do you have one that operates on 110v or could I adapt these to a 110v outlet? Also how would these attach to a sand stucco surface? Also can I bend this tape 90 degrees at a corner?
