New to the forum and the world of saber building. I am just confused at how neopixels would work as accent lights in general.

How does one wire them up to the CFX board? I'm trying to sketch out the wiring for everything before I begin my journey.

As an example. Let's say I wanted to use a neopixel led as an accent light for a crystal chamber. I want to mirror the led with the blade.

What is the recommended way of wiring it to the board? Do I simply use the accent led pads (1- on the cfx board to the data pad on the pixel? Then I assume pixel + pad goes to battery and - pad I'll just ground out?

If the accent led pads are used, is it recommended to use an smd resistor or do I just short those 2 little pads?

Apologies if my question is dumb. I am just trying to educate myself with everything.

Thank you.
