My understanding so far is that 12V is a lot easier to use in larger projects. ยจ
My Xmas displays use 12V strings and I recently plugged in 500 LEDs and you can't see any color change over the length.

The WS2811 chip is a 5V device and the 12V power gives it much more latitude for long runs.
Fritzing pictures are NOT schematics. I don't speak Fritzing.

Please do not ask for help by PM. I will not respond. If you need help, post a question on the appropriate forum.

Regards to an test on Youtube the max length without seeing any light difference is 4-5 strings (200-250 LEDS) with full brightness. (12V).
