NEW PRODUCT – Solderless Analog RGB LED Strip Clip Sampler

Window-1-191

NEW PRODUCT – Solderless Analog RGB LED Strip Clip Sampler. These ingenious little clips make it easier than ever to use our analog LED strips – no need to solder! The clips snap onto the ends of the LED strip and hold securely. They’re not waterproof but you could cover them in heat-shrink to make them weatherproof.

You get one piece of three different types: One is a short “joiner” – it can join two strips together. The second type is a long “joiner” – it can join two strips together 6″ apart. The third type is a “pig-tail”, it gives you four stripped wires at the end that you can solder or plug into one of our controllers (also 6″ long).

When using our analog LED strip, you’ll have to carefully remove the waterproofing with a small hobby-knife. This will work with our 30 LED/meter or 60 LED/meter strip. It will not work with the digital LED strip!

We have a tutorial on using these clips over at http://learn.adafruit.com/solderless-rgb-led-clips/

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. In the first photo, it looks like the green wire goes to “B” and the blue wire goes to “G”. Should that joiner be the other way around? I guess it doesn’t really matter, except for the pigtails.
