CPE neopixel best practices

by plattnerd on Wed Feb 24, 2021 11:52 am

I'm building a lighting project around a circuit playground express and can't seem to find any information on extended, high power use - if I run the onboard neopixels at full intensity for a long time, will this shorten their overall life or is it relatively low risk? If it might shorten the life, would extra cooling help? Thank you!

Have you seen this rich reference on NeoPixels: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-neopixel-uberguide ? There is a page there on power issues, although I don't think it addresses your specific question.
