Cutting / Connecting Blinkstrip Flex LED Strip



I am looking to create some under monitor RGB lighting across three monitors mounted on stands. The total length is 1.6 meters. I have three main questions:

  1. I understand that the flex can be cut along marked lines, are some kind of cables sold to connect these together, or must I solder my own wires onto the pads?

  2. Can the Flex Board support additional LED’s beyond the 1 meter length? As I mentioned earlier 1.6 meters total, or would I need 2 Flex Boards?

2a. If I need two, can they be easily coded to act as one?


  1. You have to solder your own wires
  2. You need 2 flex boards as one only supports up to 32 LEDs.
