Wired Connections

Two NeoPixel strips are daisy chained together. Each strip has eight NeoPixel LEDs making a total of 16 NeoPixel LEDs.

NeoPixel Strip

  • DIN to Pin #6 on Feather
  • GND to GND on Feather
  • 5V to 3V on Feather
  • DOU from strip #1 to DIN on strip #2
  • GND from strip #1 to GND on strip 2
  • 5V from strip #1 to 5V on strip #2


  • Enable and Ground on Feather


The Adafruit board can be powered via USB or JST using a 3.7v lipo battery. In this project, a 1200mAh lipo battery is used. The battery is rechargeable with a USB lipo charger. The switch is wired to the EN and GND pins on the Feather.
