The pinouts for the cables are pretty straigthforward. Pin 1 is +5V power, Pin 2 is Data Out and Pin 3 is Ground. Pin 1 is marked on the connectors with a triangle. If you look at the connector on the lighting channel, pin 1 is on the right. There's no reason why you couldn't crimp a Corsair/Molex connector on to the strips or, as many 3rd party strips have JST connectors, create a Corsair/Molex to JST cable.

You can also use a multimeter to make sure that you have it right.

A fire extinguisher shouldn't be necessary but keep an eye out for blue smoke. If that happens, something is miswired. And yes, I've done that. RIP NoPro.
