I ordered and received WS2812B 5050 RGB Individual Addressable LED strip and for the first time I received an LED strip without cutoff points and with no pads. The product images and description do not match what I received and I have begun the return/refund process.
In the mean time, I'm wondering how would you go about cutting and joining these up? I guess scratching through the top surface to reveal the traces beneath? Since they are individually addressable I'm guessing they can be cut off one by one.
Is this just the cheapest possible way to manufacture these kinds of LED strips without having to include those solder pads?
