Anyone have an eagle part for this? Just want to make sure I get the pinout right. Also, the data sheet image looks different than the picture. Which side is pin one?

Awesome thank you!
Do you plan on carrying the 4 pin version of this? It’s in the eagle library but I can’t find it anywhere on sparkfun. I’d prefer to order from you rather than direct from china… Not really looking to purchase 1000 of them.

Oh wow! Wish I knew you were at that camp! I was camped a couple blocks away (3:30&I with the 4' giant discoball).
Waited in line for the pendulum for about an hour and saw that getting cranked up. At first people thought it was a giant tetherball. Pretty sweet tho!

Are these the same LEDs as the single version (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10820)? I’m assuming so but the luminosity is completely different. These also seem pretty bright (looking at the info above) compared to other RGB LED’s I’ve seen. Can anyone confirm these are really that bright?

Basically you want an inverter to power what you have running at once.
If you have 20 feet of EL wire but cut it into 5 foot segments and chase across those segments, you only need a inverter that powers 5 feet (as that’s what is running).
If you use an inverter thats too powerful tho, it will overpower the EL wire and appear brighter, but the lifetime of the EL wire will be shortened.
Anyone know how many/which pins this uses on the Arduino board? I want to control other devices while controlling the EL wire and was wondering how many pins I had left to work with.
