Ultra Bright 3 Watt Chainable NeoPixel LED - WS2811

by Adafruit

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 we're exaggerating, but these are really bright.

These chainable NeoPixel LEDs are not only super-smart, they are ridonkulously bright with 3W total, compared to 0.2W of a 'standard' NeoPixel.

Each order comes with one 3W NeoPixel LED on an aluminum PCB/holder/heatsink. Please note that even though the PCB acts as a heatsink, 3W is a lot of power to dissipate as heat so you may need an additional heatsink or fan or other cooling mechanism! 

Each order comes with ONE fully assembled NeoPixel with JST 3 SM connectors at both ends. We stock cables that you can use to connect to these - note that Adafruit use a connector with pins at the data in (DI) end of these LEDs, which means you'll need a connector with sockets to attach to your microcontroller. The colours of our wires are also different, so make sure you double check your power / ground wires are going to the right place!

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
