For an LED strip all you really have to consider is making the splice clean, tight and well-insulated when you're done. The draw for LEDs is so low that you'd have to work to find wire small enough to overload it. Since it's easiest to splice wires of similar gauge, get wire to roughly match what you're splicing into and it should be fine. For a semi-permanent connection, pros recommend the crimp-and-solder connectors.
