Description

This RGBW NeoPixel strip comes in a Neon-like Silicone Tubing, combining the best of "Addressable NeoPixels" and "Ruggedized LED Neon" for a great looking, high-density, easily programmable, and very durable light strip. It has a diffused look like neon, but without needing expensive transformers, glass tubing, inert gasses, or a Las Vegas casino license.

It's flexible and bendy with a solid chunk of translucent silicone rubber as a diffuser; the diffuser is rounded, and we also have a similar NeoPixel Neon LED strip with a flat diffuser. In particular, what we like about this one is it's 144 LEDs/meter and can be driven from 5V power.

The silicone makes for a strong, durable weather-proof casing. While not guaranteed for dunking underwater or long-term outdoor exposure, they're durable enough for projects that survive the outdoors, like cosplay, bike lighting, or festival decorations. You can cut this stuff with wire cutters if you want to shorten it, but you cannot join the pieces together again afterward.

You get a 1-meter long tube with two JST SM 2-pin connectors on either end and two power wires in red and black. Provide 5V on the power pins, and provide your standard issue NeoPixel (WS281x) data on the white pin. There are 144 NeoPixel-compatible LEDs inside. Don't forget to share the ground pin between the 5V power supply and your microcontroller. Boom - you're glowin' in style.

Don't forget to set your NeoPixel driver for RGBW mode, which is not usually the default. The 4th channel is connected to the 6000K white LED element.

We also carry a Warm White version.
