    Cool ESPixel Stick & ESPixel Pops with 5050 rgb Led Strips?

    Hello

    I've ESPixel pops with WS2812B and everything is working ok.
    Now my questions are:

    - Is there a way to make it work with 5050 RGB Led strips?
    - Or should i forget about it because it doesn´t worth the investment?

    Thanks for your thoughts

    i have no problem with arduinos (except coding ) and no problem soldering.
    Also developed my "simple pcb board".

    Any suggestion to my question about ESPîxel and 5050 rgb led strips?

    I have used these types of strips https://www.ebay.com/itm/WS2811-5050...N7yhv8OTkOnJoQ with the ESPixel Stick the only configuration change I needed is they are not RGB the order is different and you need to change it in the ESPixel setup, or you can change it in vixen they work fine without changing but the color doesnt match what color you select in your sequence other than white. Once you change the color order you can get the colors to match up.

    Are you talking about dumb RGB strips? if so then no they will not work. You can add the WS2811 chip and and an RGB Amplifier )the WS2811 chip does not put out much power) and you can then use the PixelSitcks to control them.

    ps: get the connector for the Amplifiers too.

    I remember Shelby doing a hack to allow the ESPIXELSTICK to run Dumb RGB using some RS485 boards as well:

    But I think Ruppro's suggestion is easier....
