0.4A is what my Fluke is reading when I connected it when I had the string attached to the power supply. I'm assuming its using the same amount of current on the battery setup too. I connected it to the 5v line in series with the LED strip to measure the 0.4A. Depending on what colors and brightness was displayed it would raise up to around 0.5A, but generally floated around the 0.4A area.
