Sheathing on side light neopixel strips

by ShelM on Mon Sep 24, 2018 2:55 am

Hi...

Is it hard to remove the weatherproof sheath from the side light neopixel strips? e.g. PRODUCT ID: 3634 120 leds/m.

I like my leds *sparkly* rather than diffuse. 8^)

Thanks,
...Shel

No, its pretty easy, its just a silicone sleeve, if you cut one side of the led sleeve off then you will be able to pull it off.

That's good to know as well.

What I was afraid of was that the weatherproofing took the form of those 12 volt single-color led strips, where weatherproofing defies *any* attempt at removal. A really tenacious bonded flexible sealant is what is used there - very maker unfriendly. So...Yay adafruit!!
