Better grab your sunglasses, your sunscreen, and a bucket hat because these NeoPixels feature a 3W RGB LED and are so bright it’s like taking a vacation ON THE SUN. Alright maybe Adafruit are exaggerating, but these are really bright.

Great lil boards, have been meaning to get my hands on one after Murray’s sweet Borg cube project and the forum topic exploring why sometimes the clock-less protocols weren’t working.

Some notes:

  • I had to change the colour output, not uncommon for LED strips - the format for mine was GRB, instead of GlowBits - RGB.
  • My default code tried to address 300 LEDs (not the single one connected) - after setting it correctly at one behavior was a-ok


Looks very bright and beautiful. Wish to use these someday.
