Which is brighter LED 5050 or 3528?

5050 chips are typically 3 times as bright as 3528 chips. Because they’re brighter, strips with 5050 chips are typically used for what we call ‘task lighting’, and commonly used underneath kitchen cabinets where that light will help you see what you’re working on.

Which is brighter LED 5050 or 2835?

As mentioned above the 2835 SMDs can produce 360 to 720 lumens of light per meter of the light strip, depending on the LED density, however, the 5050 LED strip can produce up to a 1000 lumens per meter of light. This makes it perfect for lighting larger spaces like airports, hospitals, warehouses, factories, and more.

Can you cut 5050 LED lights?

Yes, LED strip lights will carry on working after they’ve been cut as long as you cut along the designated lines. LED strips are made up of several individual circuits, so each cut line demarcates the end of one circuit and the start of a new one.

Are 5050 LED waterproof?

【SMD 5050 LED Rope Lights】There are 300pcs RGB color leds on 16.4ft flexible PCB board. 【IP65 Waterproof PCB】This 5M length flexible strip is waterproof(IP65),indoor use only. The polyester resin material covering the PCB to protect LEDs against multi-directional, low-pressure water jets.

What is RGB LED 5050?

The 5050 is an RGB strip whose chips measure 5.0mm by 5.0mm. They have 3 LED diodes in each casing called tri-chips, which gives them a very bright glare when turned on at full power. The 5050 LED uses about 60mA of power, has a surface area of 25mm squared, and a brightness of 22 lumens.

What is a dip LED?

DIP (Dual In-Line Package) LEDs are the traditional LED lights. It is what most people think of when they picture LED lights. They look the most like a traditional light with the chip encased in hard plastic generally used with 2 straight parallel connecting pins.

What is the most efficient LED chip?

2835 SMD CHIP A newer led chip on the market named the 2835 led chip and is seen as even more efficient than 5050 led chip for 20% more light with using less wattage. It also has the benefit of not getting as hot because it is smaller.

How wide is a 2835 LED strip?

10 mm wide
Furthermore, the strips have a difference in width, the 3528 LED strip is 8 mm wide, the 5050 LED strip 10 mm and the 2835 is also 10 mm wide. LED strips are available in 12V and 24V, but also in other voltages. However, the 12 and 24 volts are the most common.

Can LED lights cause a fire?

The possibility of led strip lights catching fire is minuscule, even though they are hot to touch. Incandescent bulbs have a filament that emits excessive heat, the light sources can ignite a fire on overheating, but as LED lights produce light at a lower temperature, they don’t catch fire as easily.

How do you keep LED lights from ripping off paint?

Unplug your LEDs from their power supply. Unless you know what you’re doing, you should never play with live electricity. You can use a hairdryer to heat the adhesive layer on the LEDs. This will make it softer and easier to pull off.

Should I get waterproof LED lights?

If you plan on using your LED Strip Lights in a kitchen, bathroom or outside, then the answer is almost certainly yes. In most other situations, waterproofing your LED Strip Lights isn’t essential. Waterproof LED Strip Lights feature a special plastic coating called an IP rated coating.

Are waterproof LED lights better than non waterproof?

Waterproof will diffuse the lights better. It looks smoother and you won’t see each individual led light. The light will look like one smooth brightness throughout the strip. The non waterproof has the leds exposed.
