The most ugly thing about most RGB LED strips is the discreteness of the individual LEDs. From a close enough distance, your eyes can clearly perceive the spacial difference between light spots. has anyone found a good tactic for diffusing individual SMD LEDs? I'm thinking of trying a very small blob of hot glue and seeing if that takes the edge off it. It's slightly translucent.
I have been fighting with intermittent charging on our iPads.
The connector seems to be the problem not the lead..It does not seem to fully fit in the socket as it used to
first unplug the charger from the socket

When making connectors like this, I always include a key pin so that it's impossible to connect them the wrong way round. For this one, I would use seven pins, snip off pin 2 and force it into the connector at position 2, which has no wire connected to it. I recently released the smoke in a 2.5" IDE hard drive by connecting it the wrong way round!
