Soldering 3 Watt LEDs

It’s Manufacturing Monday at Adafruit! We manufacture, assemble, and test many of our products in house here at Adafruit. This video shows a 3 Watt LED being soldered onto a Pixie. These LEDs are ridonkulously bright, with 3W total, compared to 0.2W of a ‘standard’ NeoPixel, sunglasses are required when testing these!
