NEW PRODUCT – Solderless Analog RGB LED Strip Clip Sampler
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!

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.
