I'm wrapping my head around my electronics theory (it's been a long while).
I've read that the max current from the 5v VCC pin on the Arduino Uno is 200ma before any damage is done.
I'm using an Adafruit NeoPixel 24 LED ring. Based on this page, each LED draws up to 60mA at full brightness. If I max each LED out that's 1440ma of current required.
I (foolishly as I now know) have been running all pixels at white on full brightness directly from the Arduino. Measuring the current (serially) on the ground line, there was roughly 315mA flowing in the circuit.
My question is, is the Arduino managing to get the circuit up to 315mA but from that point cannot provide anymore current? Is this is then the absolute non documented maximum that my Arduino can provide?
Further to that, does that mean I've been damaging the Arduino?
