Skinny Mini power draw

Hello! I am looking for an amperage requirement for an individual pixel of Skinny Mini leds. I am seeing the per meter measurements, but was looking for something more accurate. Thanks!

The Mini Skinny strips are based on the SK6812 chips. Unfortunatley, the SK68xx datasheet doesn't say much about the individual chip current draw.

However, our recommendation for sizing RGB NeoPixels is always 60mA per chip (+20mA for the RGBW) which matches up nicely with the 144 per meter or 8.6A requirement.
