Regular price R 95.00

New in stock!

We have 20 LED per metre APA102 LED strips.

These are a newer kind of LED, which are much more expensive than the WS2812B, but are more appropriate for fast moving applications, where persistence of vision is required.  They use the standard SPI protocol, instead of a single data line, allowing much faster PWM than the 800kHz required for WS2812Bs.  So they can achieve completely flicker-free displays.

Price is per metre!  They are expensive!  If you can deal with a tiny bit of flicker, rather get 5m of WS2812Bs!
