How have you connected them? What is their power connection wired to? What's the controller? Did you test them individually?

I have tested each ring individually but nothing

I understand that's the way it should be connected. Does your wiring agree with it?

How did you test them individually?

The battery is charged? The switch is "on"?

Yes and I have double checked the connections And solder point are all good.

I have tested it with out connecting the switch and board does turn on but the rings do not. I have tested by just connecting to the voltage and ground on the rings

They're neopixels... connecting power and ground do nothing with sending them a correct data signal. See https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-neopixel-uberguide. In retrospect, that might be the problem all along.

Followed the guide you listed but I was not able to get the lights to power on.

I did also tried using SP107E Controller that works off a 5v and connected to the Neopixels and still was not able them to power on
and I did also try them separately as well as in a daisy chain with no luck

Can you post a clear photo of your actual, physical wiring & connections?

Here’s a link to all my connections as if I resize the photos any smaller. It will become unseeable

My first step would be to tidy the soldering, with less bare wire visible that could cause shorts and cleaner joints. See https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-guide-excellent-soldering and https://learn.adafruit.com/collins-lab-soldering for tips/advice.

I just did those connections quickly to show you them. But thanks for the tip about that

At this point I would just like a refund on these two neopixels

Let's see if a new set fixes it. Please email support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread, your order number, and request the replacement of two NeoPixel Triple Rings.
