Will the Side Light NeoPixels work with 3.5V or just 5V?

I got a strip as soon as I saw them for a set of boots that in am currently using regular NeoPixel strips on with a lipo battery. I tried connecting them to my chip and nothing happened.

It has been a while since I have messed with it again, but just seeing if I may need a boost converter.

Thanks,
Richard A

Don't know if you are hitting the same problem I did at first -- but the reel I got was wound with the input on the inside of the spool, and so I didn't notice that at first and tried plugging the wrong end in -- Data out -- and got no light...
