Can’t find

by zburhop on Sat Dec 02, 2017 1:03 pm

Hi,
Sorry to repost. Somehow my my Last post got locked. I see digikey but they only have 72 which I purchased. I’m looking for 168 more meters. Any ideas?

We have 5 meters of those in stock at the moment but get more all the time. You can check with Digi-key or look online for other suppliers other than Adafruit.

I understand you have 5. I just baught the entire stock from digikey. I need about 172 more meters. If I buy them 5 meters at a time it will take forever. What I am asking you is if there is a supplier that can get me the nessicary amount.

I sometimes shop for configurations not offered at Adafruit. That's when I use search terms like SK6812 and WS2812B. Plenty of strip vendors appear among the hits. There's no Adafruit guarantee, but my luck has been good so far. If you shop from multiple vendors, take care not to mix types (RGB vs. RGBW), and there still may be color differences between batches. Best of success.

Hallelujah!

I thought about that too. But I don’t want to take the risk of having color variations. It would be pretty noticing in my application. I wonder what the deal with the neopixels is. Maybe there’s a production issue or something?
