Came across this diagram as I am designing a lighting layout with a ton of NeoPixel LEDs:
I will have approximately 165 Adafruit NeoPixels in the setup, totaling an amperage need of around 9 amps for just these LED pixels in the strip. In addition, I will need to wire around 10 additional simple LEDs to another output pin and will have the Adafruit Music Maker MP3 shield connected.
I’ve estimated that I’ll need around 15 amps to properly power it all. I’m at the point where 1 5V 10A supply is too small, but 2 x 5V 10A to spread out the amperage would be a bit overkill. This leads me to my main question: Is a single 5V 15A DC converter the best way to accomplish this? If so, I’m assuming the wires will have to be a tad bit bigger than the breadboard jumpers I’m used to lol
