Source for Neopixel RGBW Reel

by jsnysny on Fri Jan 04, 2019 5:35 pm

Heya everyone!

I'm in need of the warm white RGBW neopixels in an uncut length of reel. Have any of you ordered larger quantities from other sources?
I would greatly appreciate some advice on reputable sources, as I'm still pretty new to this whole thing.
The most obvious solution to me would be to find a source on somewhere like ali express (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/10-1000 ... 76281.html), but I have no idea if the quality is the same or if there is something else different that might throw me off.

Many thanks!

Hi. I'm a customer too, and we're on our own when hunting information like this. The Adafruit shop is contractually bound not to reveal their sources, and these forums aren't suited for discussions of alternate vendors. My best suggestion is to start with a small test quantity from a potential supplier. Best of success.

Hallelujah!

If you order 2m from adafruit it comes as a 2m roll. Its not two cut 1m rolls. You can get up to a 5m length
