Just got mine in the mail today.
They were the $26.00 set.
As far as I can tell, they are the same set and components.
Wiped the awning tube down with Acetone
Peeled off backing and started adhering to tube across the width, using the slot in the tube as a guide.
There was a solid line across the LED stripe every 3 LED's. I cut across the line as a test further down the excess strip to make sure I was to cut directly on the line. The remaining lights stayed on. So I then made my final cut to length.
The power cord just barely reached from my outside plug to LED plug.
I put a zip tie at each end of the LED strip to support the adhesive.
On the cut end, I covered the end with electrical tape and then made 1 wrap around the tube with electrical tape.
The RF sensor is a little weak, but it seems to work acceptably. I don't plan on doing a lot of changing of colors.
All done. Cool mod for $30 including shipping.
I'll wait for dark and see how it looks.

End that is trimmed off
Plug end, just enough length :-)
