Don’t know what a QuinLED-Dig-Quad is? Click here for the introduction video!
In short, the QuinLED-Dig-Quad expands the board in several regards vs the Dig-Uno. These enhancements are centered around power delivery (30A board power, 7x positive/negative terminals, 5x fuse holder) and outputs channels (4x), read the rest of the board specs here!

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 anything of the sort, 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” ESP32 Wemos D1 Mini you can use to run any software on. It comes pre-flashed with the excellent WLED 0.10.0 firmware! Commercial products are often complicated or try to prevent you to flash your own software while with the QuinLED-Dig-Quasd 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 ESP32 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! 🙂
