10m Addressable RGB LED Star Wire (AKA NeoPixel, WS2812B, SK6812)

66 cute individually-addressable RGB LED stars on flexible silvery wire, great for coding up celestial room decor ā­šŸŒˆ

  • 10 metres long with 66 individually addressable frosted LED stars
  • WS2812B/NeoPixel-compatible
  • Snazzy silver coloured wire
  • TinnedĀ wires on one end forĀ attaching to screw terminals
  • Useful hook on the other end for attaching to things
  • Dust/water resistant*

Addressable LEDs let you individually set each LED in the chain to a specific RGB colour by sending signals from a microcontroller. If you're looking for an easy, plug and play LED controllerĀ check outĀ Plasma 2040Ā or Plasma Stick - just connect up the tinned wires to the screw terminals, apply USB power and you're ready to start making rainbows!

Alternatively, you couldĀ use a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, micro:bit, or other microcontroller to drive them - there areĀ loads of different code libraries available (Python, MicroPython, CircuitPython, Arduino, and more).

Pinout

The 5V / + / VCC wire on these LEDs is theĀ oneĀ marked with dots. The DATA / PIXELSĀ wire is the one in the middle, and the GROUND / - wire is the one on the other edge (that doesn't have dots).

Note that the colour order of these LEDs is RGB, you may need to specify this in your code.

Notes

  • * The LEDĀ wireĀ isĀ IP67 rated, which means it should stand up to modest outdoor use. Make sure your controller is kept inside or suitably protected from the elements!
