  • are you sure those ones are individually addressable? I have seen many strips on ebay that look similar for that price but most of them are just 4 busses like X-mass lights… Not a PWM chip on each light… If you really have seen these for that price, tell us where!

  • Yes, I removed the adhesive because it was not strong enough for what I was doing. I just ripped it off with my fingers and a little WD40 to help. I replaced it with VHB (very high bonding) tape made by 3M which is a lot better than the double sided tape that it comes with

  • The only issue with these is that the LEDs do not have a hard epoxy lens, so if you put any pressure on the front of the strip (as I did by mounting them where they could be stepped on), the pressure on the tiny LED chips inside will cause them to become intermittent. I am amazed that someone would actually think its a good idea to cut corners and manufacture an LED without a hard epoxy cover!

No public wish lists :(
