Hard drive power connector shorted and melted down. I excavated the connectors, carefully, with a knife, straightened them out with pliers, and slowly, gently inserted the reconstructed connector into an external enclosure's connectors. It worked!

HARDWARE QUESTION:
Ok, so I bought two 8' INK1003 RGB strips for $24 each at Home Depot.
Everything works fine with the supplied 12v 1A power supply as long as I use only one strip. As soon as I join two strips, the strings go wacky (flash a couple times, show random colours) if I push the LEDs too bright.
What do I need to do to power the whole 16'?  Do I need a 2A power supply? I don't want to blow anything up...
