Checkpoint: Damn LED Connectors Edition

If you’re looking to pick up some LED strips, I’d consider NOT getting these LED connectors. I bought 10 of them and only 1 is working consistently. Over a 6 month period, 9 connectors have inexplicably failed resulting in my LED strips flickering. I tried replacing strips and no luck.

I have several choices from here on out:

  1. Buy more of these damn LED connectors. They’re relatively cheap.
  2. Buy these seemingly superior connectors for about a dollar a pop.
  3. Try soldering

I’m leaning towards the soldering iron. I’ve never soldered something before but I have family members with some experience.

I’m just bewildered by the finickiness of these LED strips.

I think I’m nearing the end of Wolfenstein: The New Order. What a great game. I absolutely love the decisions the developers at Machine Games made along the way. It’s a straight forward game but it also allows so much player choice. I don’t want it to end.
