No, the strips have the LEDs wired in parallel, so a fixed voltage power supply can be used, with the current demand being proportional to the number of LEDs in the length of strip you have. This requires that the pieces of strip all be wired with each side of the LEDs being in series. Effectively we put the strip pieces back together.
