Are you looking to run the excellent WLED software but don’t want to cobble together an ESP8266 with some loose wires, do the soldering or maybe want a bit safer setup? The Pre-Assembled QuinLED-Dig-Uno makes it easy, just screw in the power and LED wires and plug it in! The QuinLED-Dig-Uno comes out of the box with the WLED software already flashed so it’s really as easy as just hooking it up!

What you are getting:

  • Fully Assembled QuinLED-Dig-Uno v2r6 board
      • PCB Color: Dark Blue
      • ENIG (Gold) plated
      • 2OZ copper (Tested up to 25A continuous)
        • Includes 10A Fuse
      • Includes 5v/12v DC-DC converter
      • Includes DS18B20 Temperature sensor
    • Includes Wemos D1 Mini ESP8266 top board (with headers soldered)
      • Has onboard Micro-USB port for programming any firmware you like!
    • Includes Jumpers for 5v/12v selection and GPIO 2/3 selection
    • Pre-Installed with WLED 0.10.0 out of the box!
    • Does NOT include Micro-USB Cable (for flashing firmware)

All of the above will be sold for 24,99$ per board excluding shipping!

WorldWide & US/CA store

I am working together with DrZZs and Xgeeks.ca to offer this board. The main store I am selling from is the international store through the allnet.china store and they service the whole world. But if you are in the US, DrZZs will have local stock and the same goes for Xgeeks.ca for Canada! Since they ship out locally shipping costs for you should be lower and you should also get it a bit quicker, so as long as they have stock, it’s recommended to order through those shops for those locations!

After you order

Next to your board you are of course also going to need some LEDs! Check out my article about What Digital 5v/12v RGB(W) LED Strip to buy and other forms of Digital RGB LEDs (Christmas lights, panels, etc.)! And if you also need a power supply, check out selecting the appropriate power supply. And last, but certainly not least, if you need some extra wires or coupling blocks or something like that, check out the tools and equipment topic!

 

After you receive your board

This is still very much a DIY board, that means it comes with a “vanilla” ESP8266 Wemos D1 Mini you can use to run any software on. It comes pre-flashed with the excellent WLED 0.9.1 firmware this time as a bonus! Commercial products are often complicated or try to prevent you to flash your own software while with the QuinLED-Dig-Uno it’s meant for doing that! If you’d like to flash a newer version of WLED, check out the “Pre-Assembled QuinLED-Dig-Uno WLED manual” which will have a small guide (written and video) on how to set it up using WLED. But there is also nothing preventing you from running other software like ESPhome, Tasmota, ESPixelstick or even something you’ve programmed yourself!

Pre-Assembled vs DIY

The advantage of buying pre-built is that you don’t have to buy all the separate components and do any soldering yourself. That means it saves you the time and you don’t have to own the equipment either, it’s immediately ready to use with WLED on the board or you can flash it with the ESP8266 USB port. The down side is that it is a bit more expensive per board. So if you are deciding between the two options, keep that in mind. If you are able to build them yourself and have the time available, that is still going to be cheaper but if you can’t or don’t have the time, I hope the pre-built version is at a good price point to still make them a good deal for those people! 🙂
