Ultra High Density LED PCB Bar - 128 LEDs (Adafruit DotStar compatible)
This isn't your ordinary LED strip this is a special rigid PCB bar with 128 powerful DotStar LEDs tightly packed on. Also, instead of a plain PCB this has an aluminium backing for extra strength and heat dissipation.
This rigid LED Bar is just under half a meter long (400mm) with 128 addressable LEDs and looks fantastic as accent lighting, back lighting, edge lighting, etc!
These LEDs require quite a bit of juice to run, you could turn on all the LEDs on at full brightness and draw about 6 Amps but you'll overheat and damage the LEDs. So instead, we suggest keeping the brightness at 50% or don't light up to many LEDs. Keep the power usage at under 15W (3A @ 5V)
Please Note: The PCB is rigid but requires support so it doesn't droop and crack. It's not intended to be bent or curved at all, and if you do so you may crack the copper traces. It also requires some form of cooling if you plan on running the LEDs any higher than 50% brightness.
