Better grab some sunglasses, sunscreen, and a bucket hat because these NeoPixels feature a 4W RGBW Natural White LED and are so bright it's like taking a vacation ON THE SUN.
Alright, maybe we're exaggerating, but these chainable NeoPixel LEDs are not only super-smart, they are also ridonkulously bright with 4W total, 1W per channel, compared to 0.2W of a 'standard' NeoPixel.
Each order comes with one RGBW NeoPixel LED on an aluminum PCB/holder/heatsink. Please note that even though the PCB acts as a heatsink, 4W is a lot of power to dissipate as heat so you may need an additional heatsink or fan or other cooling mechanisms!
Each order comes with ONE fully assembled NeoPixel with JST 3 SM connectors at both ends. Note that the pinout and cable polarity do not necessarily match other NeoPixel strips, check the wire names/color and direction before use.
Don't forget to set your NeoPixel driver for RGBW mode, which is not the default usually. The 4th channel is connected to the 4000K white LED element.
Adafruit have a tutorial showing NeoPixel wiring, power usage calculations, example code for usage, etc. Please check it out!
Please note: these are high power LEDs, you need a strong 5V power supply that can provide at least 1/2 A per LED
We also have Cool White and Warm White versions of these chainable NeoPixels.
