WS2812 5meter strips
« on: December 23, 2020, 02:28:16 PM »
  Power Supply

     5 meters, 150 LEDs, 5V. At 60mA max for each LED, this would be a total of 9000mA, or in other words, I'd need a 9 amp power supply. Call it 10amps for a little wiggle room.

    5 meters, 300 LEDs, 5V. At 60mA each, this would be a total of 18000mA, or in other words, I'd need a 18 amp power supply. call it 20amps for a little wiggle room.

. You'll need to tie all the grounds together if you use different power supplies. Also, if you use one power supply, you will have to "inject" power along the strip. My suggestion is to insert power every 5m.
