Default LED string lights

So, I am about to finally start making some modifications to my Tacoma. It has a rooftop tent that I want to install lighting into. My plan is to run a wire from the auxiliary battery (installing that later this month) to the bed of the truck and then up to the tent.

My question is: Can I just take a regular old LED light string from MalWart, cut off the AC outlet, and wire it directly to the wire from the auxiliary battery (but via a fuse obviously). I mean, LEDs are all DC right? There must be something to convert the AC to DC in the plug on most LED light strings, right?

Thanks for helping someone with about zero knowledge of electricity.
