Re: LED Lighting project for bike

Token: I wanted to see your thoughts on using a 48v to 12v converter for LED power? In some of the conversations I’ve had a few people suggested that may be the most efficient way to power LEDs given this will be on on Ebike. My buddy suggested the power on the LoRA equipment will be low enough that...

If you walk into an ATT store, they will be able to take the phone and contact the owner.

Re: LED Lighting project for bike

Yeah the more I'm reading, the more I think I'll go with 12v. I'm finding lots of sources online as well. I just figured I'd start here and Reddit.

Re: LED Lighting project for bike

To update, in some other discussions I'm having, I'll probably look a bit lower on the LED density and have something in the range of 150 on the bike as the power requirements for the 300 strip listed would be too much.

LED Lighting project for bike

Anyone have any good resources to learn about setting up individually addressable LED lighting strips for a bike. I’ve used the little El Wire strips in the past but I figure I wanted to take on a slightly more involved project this year. Are there any good online resources that can provide guidance...

Anyone from Seattle do the drive east to avoid Portland?

Re: If you are driving from the Pacific Northwest free staying at EaglesNest RV Park

Thanks for the continued offer of this. We had hoped to make it down last year but had a delay in our departure so didn't make it that far. This year that delay shouldn't exist so we'll be shooting to make our pit stop at EaglesNest.

Pedro, I've worn braid extensions for years. For itchy scalp relief: tee tree oil in a spritzer bottle is magical.
Thanks, I was thinking something like this would work. I assume she should spray it on the "exposed" areas of the scalp.
