Split NeoPixel Strip from One Strip to Two Strips

Hi all,
Wondering if it’s possible to split a NeoPixel strip from a single strip to a double strip? Meaning if you have a single strip, what happens when you solder two strips to the output pads on the single strip? Anyone done that before?

That usually works. Although not guaranteed by the chip spec, a 'fan-out' of 2 is generally possible. More than that typically requires some buffering of the signal.
