Product Details

Individual Red Green Blue SMD 3528 LEDs 5m Tape Lighting Strip w/24-Key Controller and Remote

These RGB LED tape strips are built with 9 bright, single-color 3528 surface mount LEDs (3 red, 3 green, and 3 blue) per every 6" for the great color density, 300 total. These strips are great for use as indoor strip lighting or illuminating a display case. Connecting multiple strips together is made quick and simple with solder tabs on the end of each segment. Aggressive adhesive to affixed to the back of the strip for permanent mounting.

Each strip is marked with cut lines for creating a custom length strip, or up to 32 6" strip segments with nine LEDs per section (3 red, 3 green, and 3 blue). Each section features four solder points (voltage +, green, red, and blue) to create many different color combinations and for easy daisy-chaining.

To facilitate ease of use, voltage dropping resistors are built-in. Simply connect a 12 VDC power supply (up to a 12 VDC, 6A power supply is recommended and sold separately) to the included 24-key remote control LED control unit for color control or to create amazing effects. Each strip is pre-terminated with a 4" pigtail for connection to an LED control unit (sold separately). CE and RoHS compliant. IP65 waterproof-rated for outdoor use.

Note: Due to the IR operation of this product, it is possible for remote controls of other devices to inadvertently change LED settings.

Individual Red Green Blue SMD 3528 LEDs 5m Tape Lighting Strip w/24-Key Controller and Remote
Individual Red Green Blue SMD 3528 LEDs 5m Tape Lighting Strip w/24-Key Controller and Remote is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Under cabinet lighting!I put these strips under the kitchen cabinets and they work great. I just leave them set on white all the time but I suppose I could use the remote for mood lighting. I cleaned the surfaces with rubbing alcohol first and I was careful to secure the ends so they couldn't start to peel.After a week, they're still stuck tight.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LED strip, Part 2I first tried the DCLE12116 strip. It failed spectacularly after several weeks. Missing segments, missing colors... a total train wreck. (Should have returned it for refund... and may yet but the trail is pretty cold.) So I tried this version - separate R,G, and B LEDs. So far its decent, not perfect but decent. Over a 11' run, I have one segment (6") of red LEDs that are out. The strip is fairly well hard wired into the application and the missing reds are not noticeable most of the time or I'd return the spool and try again. That said, its a pretty cool way to add color lighting effects.

does this package need anything other than a power supply to work?

I'm just curious if any other parts are needed since it says controller and remote included. I want to use this on a wrap around table for effects but I don't want to end up buying 4-5 pieces and spending over $100 to make this work properly.
Asked by: longfellow420
No, just a power supply and whatever means you choose to mount the strip to the surface. The adhesive seems to hold real well to a clean dry flat surface. My application of it is stuck to wood, hanging upside down with no problems.

How much amperage does the 5 meter LED tape requires? Can I use a 2 amperes power supply?

Asked by: Joselsantos

Why after installation it gives of a nasty rubber like oder? Is that good or bad?

Asked by: EdwardJoel
These strips have a bit of an odor right out of the box. The combined heat generated by the LEDs and resistors on the board could cause a slight rubbery smell during the first few hours of operation.

Do you sell connectors for splicing together cut strips (other vendors have them) or should I just solder them?

Asked by: TIlardi
Well, these strips do have a M/F connector on them. Soldering them is one way to make a longer strip--but I always fold one under the next as a looped-together setup so you always have the option of a longer strip. In the field, it's always nice to have options.

Power supply and effects

Two part question; 1) the pic shows a power supply, but from what I read, it is not included. Can a PE staff member please recommend an appropriate supply that you have in stock? 2) The controller shows "Flash, Strobe, Fade, and Smooth". Do all 4 effects on the controller function with these lights? Thanks in advance for answers.
Asked by: KBActive
The white box in the pic is not a power supply, that is the control box. The power supply I would recommend is below. Yes those functions will work with these lights.
