  1. A power supply module, comprising: an at least partially flexible support; a supply unit arranged on the support; and at least one outlet connection for a lighting module which can be fed by the supply unit; wherein the partially flexible support has a minimum permitted bending radius of 2 cm.
  2. The power supply module as claimed in claim 1, wherein the support is configured in an elongated fashion.
  3. The power supply module as claimed in claim 1, wherein the support comprises at least one of at least one inlet electrical and at least one mechanical connection for the lighting module.
  4. The power supply module as claimed in claim 1, wherein at least one connection is configured at least one of electrically and mechanically so as to be protected against polarity reversal.
  5. The power supply module as claimed in claim 1, which comprises at least one connection providing at least two functions.
  6. The power supply module as claimed in claim 1, which comprises at least two outlet connections.
  7. The power supply module as claimed in claim 1, at least one connection of which is configured as a zero insertion force connection.
  8. The power supply module as claimed in claim 1, which comprises on one side an adhesive tape.
  9. The power supply module as claimed in claim 1, which comprises at least one light source.
  10. The power supply module as claimed in claim 1, wherein the supply unit comprises a converter.
  11. The power supply module as claimed in claim 1, further comprising: at least one housing for at least one part of at least one of the support and of the power supply module.
  12. A lighting strip, comprising; at least one power supply module, the power supply module comprising: an at least partially flexible support; a supply unit arranged on the support; and at least one outlet connection for a lighting module which can be fed by the supply unit; and at least one lighting module; wherein the partially flexible support has a minimum permitted bending radius of 2 cm.
  13. The lighting strip as claimed in claim 12, wherein the support of the power supply module is configured in an elongated fashion, wherein the lighting module comprises a strip-shaped support having at least one light source arranged thereon, and the width of the support of the at least one lighting module and the width of the support of the at least one power supply module are essentially the same.
  14. The lighting strip as claimed in claim 12, wherein the at least one power supply module further comprises a plurality of light sources, whereby adjacent light sources are configured to exhibit essentially the same spacing as adjacent light sources of the at least one lighting module.
  15. The lighting strip as claimed in claim 12, wherein the power supply module is connected integrally with at least one lighting module.
  16. The power supply module as claimed in claim 2, wherein the support is configured as a flex film.
  17. The power supply module as claimed in claim 9, wherein the at least one light source comprises at least one light emitting diode.
