This is a 10-pack of WS2812B addressable RGB LEDs in an 8mm through-hole package. Each LED has the WS2812B driver integrated into the diffused plastic lens and is controlled through a high-speed 1-wire interface that allows for large numbers of LEDs to be chained together to form large displays.

Each colour channel of every RGB led is 8-bit. This equates to 16.7 million colours. The LEDs are controlled by shift-registers built into each lamp. In order to drive the strip you need 5v, GND and Data - easy! Once the registers are loaded, you can stop sending data.

These strips have a maximum voltage of 6V - anything higher will blow them up!

Please Note:

  • As these LEDs are cased, if subjected to over-voltage or reverse voltage the casing itself can fail and parts of it can fly off at speed (it makes a high pitched wine, then a pop as the top comes flying off - not something you want to hit you in the eye!)
  • Maximum 5V @ 60mA draw per 0.65" strip segment (all LEDs on full brightness)
  • 5VDC power requirement (do not exceed 6VDC) - no polarity protection
  • LED wavelengths: 630nm/530nm/475nm
