The ribbon is approximately 1.5 meters long, and has 30 white LEDs spaced equally along the ribbon. You can cut the ribbon easily but you cannot solder to it so once it’s cut, it cannot be re-joined. The battery pack has a simple controller that switches between a few modes: all on, fast blink, slow blink, and a slow fade in and out. It is powered by and comes with 2 x 12mm coin cell batteries, but you can also get some more from us. We also have extra battery packs. It is possible to cut the ribbon in half and then snap another battery pack onto the second piece.
Powered by 2 x CR1220 batteries
