Powering neopixels


Just wondering is it possible to power 5 x 1m WS2812B strips ( 30/m) with an arduino nano connected to a lipo battery?

The plan is to make a dance floor project where you step on a pressure pad, the corresponding 1m light strip turns on and fades off when the person hops off the pad.

(pretty new to arduino and neopixels!)


Hi Sandy,

Sounds like a fun project! When it comes to powering WS2812B strips (commonly known as NeoPixels) There is no better guide than the NeoPixel Uberguide:

This has everything you could ever need to know about how to hook up and power your LEDs!

Take a look through it and let me know if you have any questions!
