I got a few in for testing.  Quick video:

I got 3 types.  One is a much smaller 5mm head, but it might not like the resistor I was using.  I have a 220k in-line on this test (one for both LEDs).  The other 8mm I got also behaves like there's a low-voltage situation going on... I asked the vendor if they have recommendations on resistors for these setups.


But the 5mm diffused worked perfectly well so far.  Fun stuff!

Played around with them some more.  Here's 20 of the non-diffused 5mm's:

and running a rainbow pattern:

Sorry for the out-of-focus stuff.  iPhone doesn't do the best job at that.


No resistors or capacitors, running power & data right from the ESPixelStick.  I ran these all night long without issues.
