I plug the blinkt directly to Pi 3 GPIO pins & all works fine.
Because I want to position the Blinkt a short distance from the Pi, I attach breadboard wires between 3V, GND 23, 24 on the Pi GPIO pins to the equivalent pin positions on the Blinkt.
The Blinkt stays dark.
The Blinkt Pinout only mentions 23 & 23 but I assume it needs a voltage too & assume it to be 3V.
Is it 5V or have I missed something else important?
