RGB LED Matrix - Portable power supply?

by pasqualea185 on Fri Oct 04, 2019 9:08 am

I am interested in using a 32x32 or 64x64 RGB LED matrix to decorate a hat, and would need a portable power supply. Is there a recommended part that Adafruit sells that would fit the bill?

You have a look at https://learn.adafruit.com/guggenhat-bluetooth-le-wearable-neopixel-marquee-scrolling-led-hat-display, it just uses a simple AA battery pack. The more LED that are on, and the brighter they are, the more power you need. So if you want to have a lot of LEDs on at once you might need something bigger.
