WS2812 from USB Battery Pack

Follow up question to my one a few hours ago

If I was to get a few 10AH USB battery packs (the ones used to charge your phones)
and put them in parallel (to double the amp output)
could I run a LED strip from them?

They are smaller and lighter then the SLA battery I had planned and tested on using,
with a higher capacity rating
just a lower amp output (2amp per socket)

so if I got 3, all hooked up, thats 6 amps theoretical max
More then enough for what im pulling,
(measured 4 amp peak bursts)
and 30AH total would give me a decent runtime

Is there anything wrong with this plan?
