    2 dollar solar lights at the Reject Shop. Don't go buying all stock at once! These are 10cm in diameter. Super easy to take apart.

    My local Reject Shop didn't have them that I could find.
    But I did find 2m Cat6 cables in Yellow for $1 a piece on clearance.

    They should have good stock now, it's in the current catalogue (well at least here in NSW).

    I got 31 of them now. I could have bought 4 more boxes but I didn't have enough cash on me LOL. I haven't converted any yet, still waiting on some LEDs, but I don't see why an ESP wouldn't work :)

    Yep, I've been running my garden lights all year via an ESPixelstick.

    I modified the code so when e1.31 times out, it defaults back to my "idle" garden light colour
