1559 - Flora RGB Smart Neo Pixel version 2 - Sheet of 20 -

So, you want lots and lots of NeoPixels? And you want them for less? Not a problem! Here's a sheet of Flora NeoPixels fresh from the (reflow) oven. Snap them off as you need 'em and save a pretty penny while you're at it.

Each order comes with 20 pixels on a snap-apart sheet . If you want a smaller number, we also have them in packs of 4 .

What's a wearable project without LEDs? Our favorite part is the tiny smart pixels. Designed specifically for wearables, these updated Flora NeoPixels have ultra-cool technology: these ultra-bright LEDs have a constant-current driver. The pixels are chainable - so you need 1 pin / wire to control as many LEDs as you like. They're easy to sew, and the chainable design means no crossed threads.

These pixels have a full 24-bit color ability with PWM taken care of by the chip. Since the LED is so bright, you need to be less active. The driver is OK.

Each pixel draws as much as 60mA (all three RGB LEDs on for full brightness white). In theory, the Flora can drive up to 500 pixels at 30 FPS (it will run out of RAM after that). However, after about 10 pixels (or more) the resistance of the supply can affect the power supply. For large quantities of pixels over 10, you need to use a power bus for the pixels - the current draw will add up fast!
