Product Details

Lavolta KIT-1 RGB 300 LED 16 ft. Tape Lighting Strip 12 VDC Waterproof IP65 44-Key Remote 6A PSU

The Lavolta KIT-1 is easy to set up and operate, yet highly customizable. Installation is quick and simple using the 3M adhesive backing on the LED strip. Cut the LEDs to a specific length with copper pads placed every 2". These pads also make it simple to make 90° turns or add extensions. This kit is the ideal product for turning any room, shelving unit, or patio into a unique lighting experience.

Each SMD5050 LED is CE and RoHS compliant, the entire strip is IP65 rated (no ingress of dust; complete protection against contact. Water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm) against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects).

You can really get the show going with the included 44-key IR remote that gives you options ranging from slow pulsing fades, to incredibly quick color changes, and every mood from sedate to energetic. The Lavolta KIT-1 is perfect for holiday decorating, parties, or to add architectural lighting flair to homes and offices.

A switching 12 VDC, 6A power supply (with 8 feet of cable) is included for maximum LED brightness.

Note:Prior to attaching the LED strip to a surface, it is recommended that you clean the surface with alcohol and dry with a lint-free cloth. In order to connect the LED lighting strip correctly to the remote control, align the black wire with the controller connector's arrow. The strip will only work in one direction, and you cannot harm the strip by connecting it backwards. Install the LED strip connector to the controller connector with both arrows in alignment.

To use the DIY memory keys, press the desired memory key, use the up/down red, green, or blue arrows to adjust to desired color, then press the DIY memory key again to store the color.

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

Lavolta KIT-1 RGB 300 LED 16 ft. Tape Lighting Strip 12 VDC Waterproof IP65 44-Key Remote 6A PSU is rated 4.5172 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all in one kitWorks like the description says. The power supply only gets slightly warm after a few hours connected to a 16ft light strip. I have had no problems with the tape holding the light up. I turned on the light strip for a while to warm them up and wiped down the surface with alcohol before applying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mid Range Solid DeviceThis LED strip was installed in my kitchen to provide extra light on the counters. The LEDs provide plenty of light and the control features are interesting to play with ( my favorite is fading to different colors and changing the transition speeds).I cut up the 16 foot long strip into 4 pieces and soldered them together with sold core wire. This task was fairly straight forward. The soldered connections held sturdy while I was running the circuit through the cabinets.A few disappoints...1.the adhesive on the back of the strip works best on smooth surfaces( I assume it does). I had a problem with the strips not sticking to the cabinets.2. The LED's control box (not the power supply, the white control unit) became faulty after a few hours of use. I've had to order a new individual control unit to replace it (hopefully for the last time).Overall:A great product, medium-easy to install, looks really cool, wife happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the value price !!!I purchased 4 of these items, and have put all of them to good use. Endless possibilities, next project will be an infinity mirror. It would be great if Parts-Express would carry the additional items need for custom installation, such as 90 degree splice adapters and jumper wires. Overall, very well pleased with the product. Depending on how the application is mounted, it might need some help from Gorilla Glue to get the job done. I have recommended this item to other friends who are also pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lighting innovationAs a contractor, I bought and installed the LED tape under the cabinets of my customer's newly remodeled kitchen. It worked perfectly, creating a well lit work area then converting to wonderful ambient lighting at night with the touch of a button. Had to cut and splice the LED tape several times to install, but with careful soldering, no problems.were encountered. Will be getting more soon due to popular demand.Next installation will be on a boat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great kitJust got through installing this. We have a cactus made of rebar that has always had rope lights on it. After replacing them year after year I decided to give this product a try. I did not try to use the adhesive backing, just tywrapped it on like the rope lights. The led strip is rated for outdoor use, but the power supply is not? I just did a rain package, locked all the connections together with hot glue so they are water tight and put it all in a ziplock bag and wraptyed the end closed. It's a very impresive display, bright, and since it's the season everyone is jealous so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome LED Lighting KitI was about to purchase all the separate bits included in this kit to replace two failing fluorescent under-counter lights, and a Parts Express rep helpfully pointed me at this kit. I saved $20+ over the individual components, and couldn't be happier.The kit was very easy to install, and looks great under my kitchen cabinets. I cut the strip and soldered connecting wires (to run behind the microwave), and now have great light under two cabinets.I chose to stick the light strips on the back side of the cabinet fronts, pointing towards the back wall, and they give great indirect lighting for our counters.I just used strong double-sided tape to hang the power supply and remote controller under the cabinet where the fluorescent light fixture used to be. You can't see them when standing in the room.The remote with all the lighting combinations will certainly help set the mood when we have parties!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't turn lights on while still on the reelOne thing that should be cautioned against is turning on the lights for a more than a few seconds while they are still on the reel. I found that the adhesive was damaged by leaving the light on for about ten minutes. The adhesive did not stick to a wooden frame so I had to place a staple across the light strip at several places. It would be adventitious include more than one butt connector in the kit in that both ends of the light strip have connectors on them. I like the finished project that I used the lights on. placed between two glass block walls under a planter box.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cabinet LightingThis is quite a bit of stuff for not a lot of money, so you have to keep it in perspective. I installed the entire kit on a wall of cabinets and it looks just awesome. If you are going to cut the strips and solder, you need to have soldering experience. This is not an easy job as the copper pads are very close together. I ended up with 5 different pieces of strip all wired to the transformer. The remote works great. Very fun to change colors! I down-rated the product for one reason - the transformer is not UL listed. It's cheap and it gets hot. I do not expect it to last forever, but I didn't pay a whole lot so that's part of the deal. I think the LED strips will last for a very long time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad controllerThis is the second LED light kit I have bought from Part Express and the second controller to go bad on me. Under normal use approximately 3 hours of continuous use the conroller goes bad and no longer responds to the remote control. These have by no means been abused or overused. Under normal use (turning on and off daily) the controller starts to fail. So when I bought the second kit I tried the controller on the first set of lights and worked beautifully.......for a short while. Now I am having to order two controllers to make my lights functional again. I'm not an electronics type but upon opening the controller there seems to be a small resistor/?? that looks burned out. Same component on both controllers. The price was great compared to local vendors but now I see the quality as very sub par.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Infinitely usefulI have now purchased 6 of these kits. I took 2, cut them into 3 foot sections, wired them side by side on a board and created a light panel to wash one side of the stage. Repeat, repeat.Each panel is about as bright as 2-3 PAR38 cans with gels.The included controller, remote and power supply make using them simple.

My wife and kids have been trying to cause each other seizures all night with the strobe mode.Great brightness, great customization options and of course it's super simple to setup and use. It's pretty much water proof too, so when the time comes these will be installed in my screen porch to light the ceiling.Just get them, you will not be disappointed.

Does Lavolta Kit 1 come with a plug for the car cigarette lighter? Is the cord at least 8 Ft? And if not, what do I need? Cost? However, I do not want to plug in to the car while experimenting. Do I need transformer for regular house outlet? Cost?

Asked by: Legacy
This kit does not include a cigarette lighter plug. Using part numbers 090-489 and 265-272 you could make your own, which would create a 6 foot long cable. This kit does include a power supply for 100-240VAC input for standard applications.

Asked by: GraffDisplays
Here is the programming procedure for this:http://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/manuals/reprogramming-an-led-controller-manual.pdfThe 44 key version is almost the same but you would use the JUMP3 button on the remote instead of the SMOOTH button on the 24-key controller.

If you cut these strips they will have to be hard wired back together with solder. They do have a 4 pin connector on each end, although it will still have to be hard wired if you only use one controller.

With the weatherproof coating (vinyl?), how do you get to the copper contacts for cutting and reconnecting the strips?

Asked by: Evolution2001
The weatherproofing strip is adhered to the led strip with adhesive similar to the peal and stick backing on the strip, only stronger. You have to shave off just enough of the wrap to get to the solder pads on the strips.

You can cut the strips between the lights. There are many how to examples out on the web. I also found several sites where you can buy "RGB LED solderless connectors" and used them in my bar. One strip cut into two sections and another cut into three, no problems.
