Description: We know this looks like a lot of our other LEDs, but it’s not! This is a PTH Addressable RGB LED with a WS2812 control IC built right into the LED. This PTH version is incredibly similar to its SMD cousin, except it is a lot simpler to solder into your project and is in a diffused 8mm package. This RGB LED has the control IC moved into the actual LED, so we wanted to offer this amazing product to you! They’re great when you need a lot of color from not a lot of board space, now more so than ever.
If you are looking for a great addressable LED in the more common LED form factor, then this is the perfect choice for you.
Note: Comes in packs of 5.

These worked perfectly with adafruits neopixel library, plus they were very cost effective. I had 48 of them linked in three strings for my infinity table. Here’s the link if you want to see how they were wired or how bright they were: http://imgur.com/gallery/iUtkk
4/5 work perfectly, one died pretty quickly after sticking it first in a breadboard, then a PCB. It almost lights up if I attach VCC to the lead right below the cap, but dimly andv inconsistently. Less durable than a standard LED, but you get flashy colors.
They are physically larger than I expected (not sure which part of 8mm I didn’t understand when I bought them - reading is important) but they work great/as advertised/etc.
