Description: Gone are the days that you have to worry about silicone weather proofing splitting and breaking on you! These are sealed addressable 1 meter long RGB LED strips that come packed with 60 WS2812s per meter. Each of these strips are enclosed by a flexible silicon jacket with an IP65 waterproof rating to protect your precious WS2812 LEDs. You will be able to control each LED RGB individually giving you the ability to create cool lighting effects for your car, fish tank, or perhaps under cabinet lighting in your kitchen!

Note: These come in 1M segments on a reel. They are preterminated with 0.1" spaced 3-pin connectors as well as a 2 wire power connector, as shown in the pictures.

  • I bought these so i can use them as a light in my garage. However i cant seem to get them to work. I have a solar charger providing 5v output, and i just need them to provide white light from that power source. What do i need to do without buying additional boards to get them to shine white light?

  • Would it be possible to use this strip in conjunction with an Arduino (and any additional ICs) to create a small POV display? Is there anything about it that would prevent it? like the speed etc?

  • Three questions, some of which were answered on an older page I can no longer find 1.) A linked video shows an Arduino powering an entire strip without an external power source. How many LED’s of how many strips could be powered by the Arduino without having to use an external power source? 2.) Which sparkfun product, if any should be used as an external power source, if one is needed. 3.) Will https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10363 connect to the connector for this product?

    • UH, the limit on most Arduinos is 140mA - each LED on the WS2812 can pull 20mA for a total of 60mA possible from each WS2812 - so, the limit is TWO LEDs. That might be why you aren’t finding the video any more, because it’s showing a great way to burn out your Arduino…

      • In the demo video they run a strip directly from an Arduino using the NeoPixel libs from Adafruit. I tried it at home with this LED strip and it worked fine. Am I going to burn out my Arduino? Demos and tutorials I’ve found for this strip use 5v, GND, and one data pin.

  • What’s the width of the sealed strip?

  • Demo Video: https://www.sparkfun.com/videos#all/lyXX5xsy1sA

  • Can these be cut and resealed into smaller strips?

    • Yes. If you look closely, there’s bare termination pads on either side of each ‘pixel’. Cut in between those to whatever length you require. If you’re going to use these outdoors or in some other humid environment, take care to properly seal it.. just a bit of heatshrink will not suffice.

  • Looks like the product video has been pulled.
