[Group Buy-11] [C] RGB LED Strips (with WS2811)

Recommended Posts

I'd go easy on these things on USB ports.

I measured my 60LED strip at a bit over 2 amps of 5v (with a cheap multimeter) with all 60 at 255.

Some USB port fuses are that size or less, and are one-time fuses. Don't want to kill your USB ports!  (USB2 ports are rated for 500ma. USB3 ports are rated at 1500ma)

These are hungry little things.

 

 

On the topic of another GB, I want two more meters, at least.

Just FYI, a new 8mm RGB LEDs with built in 2811 will be available next month.

Also, found a source of 30LED/m non-waterproof strips for about $9/m.

Possible GB near the end of Feb.

I'm in for more of the 5050's (meter strip or 50 individual) whenever this comes around.  Thanks for taking the time to run these RobG!

Those are 8mm LEDs but the chips are on the PCB (12mm with case.) You are probably thinking about 8mm with integrated chip.

Ray supposedly has them, but they are not for sale yet.

We can wait.

For what it's worth, I just ordered a full reel of the white waterproof 60 LED/m strips from Ray (RobG's supplier I believe) ... Incredible shipping times; ordered 4/1, shipped 4/3 and arrived 4/9 (all the way from Shenzhen China, via FedEx).  Price ended up being about $15/m pretty close in price to the GB.
