Wearable Power source - namely USB Chargers (and other 5v power).
In previous wearables I’ve simply used some smaller usb chargers to provide the 5v to the arduino, and used that same power to power up to 150 leds.
I’m looking to run a teensy with 600 leds and I purchased a few larger USB chargers to try out.
I’d like to have two to power 1/2 of the LEDs (two circuits).
1- I’m having issues by passing the “smart” power of a couple of them. so if I power my teensy separately , the USB wont power my LEDs. Suggestions?
2- My plan is to have power input at LED 0 and LED 299, with another circuit power at LED 300 and LED 599. using two different power sources, with only the data line connected between them. Should I add additional power inputs along the way? (+Robert Atkins I know you made a powerbus and powered each strip individually. )
Debating buying more smaller USB chargers and swap them more often rather than fighting these large ones, but the larger ones have 2.0A outputs I need.
