Incorrect.Edison light bulbs refer to carbon- or early tungsten-filament lamps. Most of these bulbs are reproductions of the woundfilament bulbs made popular by Edison Electric Light Company at the turn of the 20th century.More on this here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edison_light_bulb

Valid point, didn't think to mention the draw. I was assuming my plan of having only one light on at any one time (random sequence) so this should be fine in this instance, I hope!Again, fab idea, can't wait to string these up in the kitchen window in time for all hallows!
Hey Jim, did you check the Q/A on Amazon? I found this;"I was able to get the strand to work fine by connecting only 1 end of the strand. Key is look for an arrow that indicates the direction of data flow (green wire) pixel0 --> pixel 49. Ground (white wires) need to be connected together and run to common ground. +5v (red/pink wire)"Suggesting that the data (green) isn't bidirectional. Worth a try!
You can power the LED's via the Arduino Uno GPIO 5v pin out and drop both the 5v power supply and the DC power jack adapters from the kit list. Great ibble, I'm just ordering what I need now! Thanks!
Pin 2 or 4 is 5v and pins 6, 14, 20, 9 or 25 are ground, so you can power the LED's via the Arduino Uno GPIO and drop both the 5v power supply and the DC power jack adapters from the kit list. Great ibble, I'm just ordering what I need now! Thanks!
If you have a check online (eBay/Amazon/your local online marketplace) you'll find plenty of listing, which will stipulate power requirements. Some are 5v DC, some 12, if the LEDs are non-programable/not individually addressable then the power consumption will be much less. Check the polarity of your adaptors and if needs be, you can remove the jack. I'd be surprised if you couldn't utilize them ?
Holy smokes, that's not corroded, that's gone! Very good point, I was about to raise this myself. Also not good for fish if anyone is considering that! ?
Consider LED lighting strips instead, less power required and there are a number of off the shelf solutions available. LED strip comes as one role and can be cut where needed for much neater installation. Cold cathode was awesome 7 years ago, but we've now harnessed the power of, well, saving power!
