Description: We know these look like a lot of our other LEDs, but they’re not! These are PTH Addressable RGB LEDs with a WS2812 control IC built right into the them. 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 5mm 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.

I’ve long been looking for a frosted version that was also PTH. The color uniformity is spot on for the batch of 50 or so I bought. When you make your PCB footprint for these use an elongated pad with the smallest annular ring on the tight axis between pins. I got lots of solder bridges using circular only padstack.
Really easy to set up, following adafruit neopixle guide.
I wish the pin layout were more usable. A 2 by 2 pinout - on .1" pitch - I would give it 6 stars
