I would like some advice on whether I can wire these light strips directly to a 24v power source rather than using the included 24v power supply? Looking to use a 24v LifePo4 battery for power, and I am wondering if I can simply cut the AC power supply off, strip back the wires, put an in-line fuse + switch in, and connect directly to my 24V battery. Thank you all.

24V LiFepo4 battery nominal Voltage will be higher than 24V (3.2V norm x 8 = 25.6V, but it can be as high as 28.80V at full charge).
So you should ask the seller what the operating Voltage range is for that LED strip.

I have a different light strip but the one I have is rated for 24V and I wired it directly to my 24V LiFePO₄. After 8 months it is working just fine despite being over 27V often.
