Hi Guys, I have been trying out some different addressable led strips.
I noticed all the 12V ones (at least what i can find) have the LEDs light up in groups of 3, not individually. You can tell when searching around ebay etc because they have one chip per 3 LEDs in the photo and the product description will never specifically say that each individual LED is addressable.
However i can find and have bought 5V strips that are addressable at a per LED level. The down side is the higher current they draw making powering them less practical. A 5 meter strip would require around 18 amps max where as a 12V strip requires allot less due to the higher voltage.
My questions is do 12V strips with individually addressable LEDs exist or are they just for what ever reason not a thing?
