Hello, I am have competition tomorrow and recently added a 9 inch strip of blue LEDs that i got from amazon (link below) and was wondering if I plugged it into a Sensor port on the Cortex that I had already initialized for an LED, would it work? I have previously just been powering the strip off a spare 9v on the Robot but that isn’t legal for competition. Although it sounds like a stupid question, I don’t want to try it and then the strip shorts out my Cortex, since we have a competition tomorrow. I would love it if anyone could provide me with any personal experience that they acquired.
These LED strips from Adafruit are 5V and RGB. I’m in the middle of porting the code to RobotC but you would only be able to about 10 inches max due to power draw. Ill post a link to the code when I get it finished up and tested.
