I need some help about WS2811 power supply.
As shown below, I hooked up 120 LED with a separate 5V/2.4A adapter to work with a NODEMCU ESP-12E with a 5V/500mA from my computer. This is is working fine.
However, when I removed 5V/500mA from the setup and connected NODEMCU 5V/GND to draw power from 5V/2.4A, the CPU, jump wires all got heat up and I smelled the burning…
What should I do to safely to provide NODEMCU 5V power with only one 5V/2.4A power adapter?
