  • I set up a test with 6 or seven of these in a long chain. What I found was that the more lights in the chain, the slower the chain was able to update. Does that make any sense? I used the example code to do a color wipe inside the loop(). In a short chain of 20-40 led’s it works fine, but in a long strip of 150 lights it updates too slow. I don’t understand why it wouldn’t just update at 1ms regardless of the number of lights.

  • That would be a much better design. Please do the above.

  • I second that. I was surprised it wasn’t designed like that to begin with.

No public wish lists :(
